I agree with Chris here... anything at all is better than the confusing 
current state. Several topics are already marked as complete (*), so 
let's start there.

My own priorities would be for stuff that is fairly mature and usable 
across browsers today, with a further focus on general utility. 
Disregarding the current status of the items, I would propose the 
following priorities:

xhr
canvas *
geolocation
indexeddb *
file *
websocket
web-storage
workers
web-messaging
appcache *
audio-video *
css-regions *
timing
webaudio *
webrtc *

Many of the ones that are already complete are aspirational at this 
point; I'm a big fan of Web Audio API, but currently it only works in 
WebKit, and it's still changing, for example.

Regards-
Doug
