Hello,

As a web developer working with CSSOM View quite heavily recently, I
would *love* to see  more attention given to fixing the ambiguities
and unspecified aspects of CSSOM View extensions (e.g.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=816238).

Boris, I also think that you would make an excellent addition as
co-editor, or at least someone helping to make the spec more rigorous.
 Your input would be greatly appreciated.
