Although I agree that starting an independent group might be a good
idea, I fear that the administrative overhead of getting everything
set up is beyond the time scope for the Widgets Work (which we want to
get to LC by end of this year). To keep the work moving forward, I
propose that interested parties continue to work with WebApps, through
our public mailing list, on the problem. We could continue to push for
an independent group and then migrate whatever gets done in WebApps to
a new group or spec.

WebApps will continue to work on the problem regardless. So I again
encourage people to work with us on the problem and put forward ideas
about how we could solve this.

Kind regards,
Marcos
