Although there were no objections to this CfC, my take on the following 
ongoing thread is that addressing the various issues discussed in that 
thread may result in the Web Messaging spec changing (and that could 
result in the spec going back to Last Call Working Draft):

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2011AprJun/1004.html

Until this is clearer, I will not submit a request to publish this CR.
