Reviewing the consequences of adopting a new work item not currently in the
charter is a significant piece of work for us and one week is insufficient
to reach a conclusion.

I expect this proposal will be formally reviewed as part of the overall
charter review as with the other proposals we discussed at TPAC and that
this call for consensus is for including these specs as deliverables on
the proposed charter.

At the present time Microsoft doesn't have a position for or against working
on these specs in WebApps but it seems reasonable to include them for
consideration in the proposed new WebApps charter.

Cheers,

Adrian.
