Hi all,

In effort to reach our goal of having a draft specification published by
December, it would make sense to start right away.  We could take a
template from another W3C specification and with some work turn it into our
specification for vehicle data.  However, I think it would be appropriate
to start from something that is already related to vehicle data.
 Specifically the Tizen Web API specification.  For one, it's already in
W3C acceptable format.  Secondly, it probably contains more than we'd like
to start with and removing is always easier than adding.  Lastly, the
source for the specification is already public and using git so
collaboration can happen immediately.

So I propose that we start with the Tizen Web API specification with a few
modifications:

1) Start with only a "get" interfaces.  Remove the "set" and "getHistory"
methods for now.

2) Reduce the data to an agreeable level.

3) Add data types as deficiencies are discovered.
