Minor word change suggestion for current draft W3C WebDriver standard

Dear WebDriver standards team,
This is very minor, but if it's a valid point, it seems more salient because it affects the very opening sentence of the standards document. 

The first sentence (Abstract) of the July 2020 draft of the WebDriver standard is:

    WebDriver is a remote control interfacethat enables introspection and control of user agents.
Wouldn't the word "inspection" be better than "introspection"?   The word "introspection" means observation of one's own self, by one's own self.  

introspection:  a reflective looking inward : an examination of one's own thoughts and feelings

The next sentence of the standard goes on to confirm "...a way for out-of-process programsto remotely instruct the behavior of web browsers...".  That matches my own first thought, that the inspection (as well as control) of a web browser or other application is being done by a remote outside tester or test system, not by the browser/application itself.

Very minor, but it did jump out at me while I was looking at the current draft.
