Given the positive support indicated, one way forward with respect to 
WebApps is for Adam to put his spec into WebApps' Mercurial repo and to 
continue related discussions on public-webapps.

Note, WebApps cannot publish this spec (in w3.org/TR/) until the spec is 
included in the WG's charter. Our current charter does not expire until 
June 2012 and at this point in time, I would not support re-chartering 
just for this one spec. (I am not aware of any urgency to publish this 
spec so if I missed something, please speak up.)

If anyone has any comments or concerns about proceeding as above, please 
send you comments to public-webapps.
