In the current charter proposal (which is under review at the moment) we  
have

[[[
Server-Sent Events
An API for opening an HTTP connection for receiving push notifications  
 from a server in the form of DOM events. The API is designed such that it  
can be extended to work with other push notification schemes such as Push  
SMS.

I'm not sure if that is enough, sounds like you would like something more.  
In which case the best thing is to get people who are interested in  
developing it to say so, through their review and in this working group.

cheers
