Thanks for the pointers, Ilya. I hadn't followed that when network information hints were removed from the httpwg Client Hints spec that they appeared in another spec. Would there be any way for us to keep track of all of these Client Hint proposals? Is there a registry somewhere or a page aggregating the active work? Or do we just need to follow all W3C WGs and WICG and IETF HTTP WG?

For example, I know that geolocation had been discussed as a possible Client Hint in the HTTP WG, but didn't seem to be an active work in progress. Was that picked up in some other venue?

Cheers,
Nick
