Thanks Dom,

That is very useful to see. In general we are very pleased with the charter, so here are some small changes from us:

1) Title: "Device APIs and Security Working Group Charter"
2) In 3.1 Recommendation-Track Deliverables:

System Information API -> Change to "System Information and Events"

* Application Configuration API
	- An API to manage application settings and user preferences
* User Interaction API
	- A set of APIs that gives a widget or website far better control of how it manifests itself on different platforms. This would include minimise/maximise 	functions, window size, alerting mechanisms etc.
* Security Policy Framework:
	- Definition of a policy description language for security policies
	- Expression of security policies that govern access of Web Applications and Widgets to security-critical APIs

3) In 4.2 Liaisons:

Ubiquitous Web Applications Working Group http://www.w3.org/2007/uwa/ To help with work on device status, particularly the work on Delivery Context: Client Interfaces (DCCI) 1.0 http://www.w3.org/TR/DPF/.

4) In 4.3 External groups:


OMTP's BONDI initiative aims to define key interfaces that enable the mobile web platform to access sensitive functions on the mobile, within a security framework that protects the user from malicious actions. OMTP can provide input to requirements and technologies for this Working Group, as well as review and endorse deliverables.

That's already the case - i.e. if there are things that are not in the
draft that were in a previous version of the draft, you can assume that
I took it on myself to remove, and if so, feel free to ask it to come

To make that simpler, here is a diff between Art's May 11 version and
the current draft:
