I've suggested that we wait until the WG requests review of a working
draft. If they haven't ironed out their internal differences around
stack introspection and confused deputy attacks by then, the TAG
should take a hard look at what the WG is getting themselves into,
since the WG is creating what could end up being a central piece of
web architecture, and a magnet for attacks.

Of course it would be nice if someone else on the TAG looked at the
editor's draft and the debate and not wait for a working draft, just
so we have as many minds on this as we can afford.

I wouldn't mind if there were an issue to track this under.
