Thanks for the info, Art.  To be clear, I personally am *NOT* proposing adding any specs to WebApps, although others might.  My email below as a Chair of the group is merely to inform people of this work and ask for feedback.
I expect that your information will be useful for others who might wish for some of this work to continue in WebApps.
