There's a draft spec here:

  http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webperf/raw-file/tip/specs/PageVisibility/Overview.html

So the feedback should probably either go the public-web-perf at w3.org
mailing list, with [PageVisibility] in the subject -

  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-web-perf/

...or directly to the editors (Jatinder Mann from Microsoft and Arvind Jain
from Google).
