I do not think there is anything in this spec that we need to comment 
on, but there are a couple of things to note...

The resize property seems to have poor touch and keyboard support in 
browsers. This is an implementation problem rather than a problem with 
the spec though.

The directional navigation properties are at risk because there is 
little interop in computer browsers. These are properties that enable 
authors to specify the direction of navigation between objects, for use 
in browsers that support spacial navigation.

I think there is enormous potential value for keyboard users in these 
properties. An obvious use case is navigation through complex data 
visualisations, where moving in tab order is often impractical and/or 
cumbersome for keyboard users.
