Dear WebApps WG, CSS WG,

(CC: CSS WG due to the potential relevance of the topic to CSS Media Queries specification [1]).

Following the recent discussion in WebApps WG about the below proposal, I have the following further points:

1. The ViewModes specification would be preserved as the member of the "Widgets 1.0: family of specifications" ([2] or [3])

2. The "new" specification could be titled "Media Queries: API & Events", it would not be a member of the "Widgets 1.0: family of specification" and would probably have to be thoroughly consulted with the CSS WG.

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Marcin

Subject: [ViewModes] Proposal: split the specification, add new events

Hi All,

Attached you can find the summary of the media features, as specified in [1] and [2].

Within this mail I would like to raise/discuss two points:

a) architecturally inconsistent handling of media features and their related APIs/events per spec

b) propose new events


Ad a)

There seems to be architectural inconsistency regarding what is specified where.
The basic media features are listed in [1], additional "view-mode" media feature is specified in [2], and the APIs/events related to all of those media features are to be specified in [2].
I think we could fix it before it is too late.

My proposal is:

1. Let [2] specify only "view-mode" media feature.

2. Move the scripting interfaces from [2] to some new spec.

3. I could prepare the split.


Ad b)

As listed in the attached document the orientation and aspect-ratio media features do not depend on the device and may change dynamically. So I would like to propose the following:

1. Add OrientationChangeEvent

2. Add AspectRatioChangeEvent

If the split of the specification would be (widely) accepted, these additions would go to the new spec (titled e.g. "Media Queries: API & Events", as originally proposed).

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks.

Kind regards,
Marcin
