CfC: Proposed Resolution for ISSUE-27; deadline January 14

From: Arthur Barstow <art.barstow@nokia.com>
Date: Mon, 07 Jan 2013 14:00:00 -0500
Message-ID: <50EB1B30.7040108@nokia.com>
To: "public-webevents@w3.org" <public-webevents@w3.org>
This is a Call for Consensus (CfC) to address Issue-27 (Touch Events v1) 
by replacing the two createTouchList methods in the CR:

[[
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/CR-touch-events-20111215/#idl-def-Document>

TouchList createTouchList (Touch[] touches);
TouchList createTouchList (Touch touch);
]]

with one variadic method:

[[
TouchList createTouchList (Touch... touches);
]]

Please note that if this proposal is agreed, it will require the TEv1 
spec to go back to Last Call Working Draft.

If you have any comments or concerns about this proposal, please reply 
to this e-mail by January 14 at the latest. Positive response to this 
CfC is preferred and encouraged and silence will be assumed to mean 
agreement with the proposal.

-Thanks, ArtB

WebEvents-ISSUE-27: createTouchList is not interoperable with existing implementations [Touch Events v1 spec]

http://www.w3.org/2010/webevents/track/issues/27

Raised by: Rick Byers
On product: Touch Events v1 spec

Current WebKit implementations of touch events implement the createTouchList API as:
TouchList createTouchList (Touch ...touches)

But the spec defines it as:
TouchList createTouchList (Touch[] touches)

The two forms are not interoperable, which I believe violates a core goal of the V1 spec.

Does this matter?
