This doesn't have to be part of the meeting time, but at some point it 
might be useful to have a discussion about integrating the spec with the 
rest of the platform in terms of model and terminology. For example the 
spec tries to define the term "window", which is already defined in 
HTML, and (iirc) should probably just use the phrase Top Level Browsing 

Note that most of the people with expertise in this area are likely to 
be in WebApps during the BTT meeting time, so if you want to do it 
during the sessions, it would be good to coordinate a little.
