Hello all,

Having read through the document, and the various comments already seen here I 
am fairly happy with this document, but I do have a few extra notes.

Feel free to throw me an action item if you like.

5.4: This section should have a "catch all" clause for any type of content, 
not just those mentioned in what appears to be an inclusive list.
A few other items that come to mind; applets, plugins and other media types 
such as video or audio.

8. Robustness

This section focuses very much on the visual aspects of a traditional desktop 
I think we can broaden the scope significantly by changing the language 

Another problem that comes to mind with non-visual browsers, such as an aural 
browsers; how can security context information be communicated? Or, 
fundamentally; How is chrome (lacking a better word) and content sparated?
I am no expert in this field, but different voices for security information 
and page content sounds like an obvious solution, or using a predefined (well 
established) sequence of information, another.
This might be relevant for ISSUE-115, as well as the IdentitySignal wiki page.


"Web User Agents MUST NOT display material controlled by Web content in parts 
of the user interface that are intended or commonly used to communicate trust 
information to users."

I suggest changing the word "display" to "present".
