Of course we will need to discuss between Harald, Francois and myself (as well as getting the new WG to agree), but spontaneously this feels like a very good way forward.

A question: filing bugs feels like something you do when the problem (and possibly the solution) is quite clear. But would not a bug filing in many cases be preceeded by a discussion, especially for stuff like WebRTC where new concepts (like peer-to-peer communication) and solutions are introduced? I think there will be a need for a lot of discussions (presumably via mail) as we move forward.

Cool, thanks Mike.

One other advantage with using Bugzilla, come to think of it, is that the bug filing mechanism in the WHATWG specs are already set up to automatically file bugs in the right components in the W3C Bugzilla.
