I've made all the changes (that Dom hadn't already made) and filed the document for Last Call publication tomorrow. The one thing that is slightly different from what was agreed upon (but for which I made a judgement call that I think is correct is the following):

Using a permission model is possible with the spec  in fact we don't enforce it either way and it is quite possible that implementers will chose that option (the alternatives we propose are not normative). As a result it's quite possible that permissions could be granted in a manner that requires them being revoked, and that there could indeed be a PERMISSION_DENIED_ERROR. If eventually everyone implements it in the manner indicated in the appendix, we can phase these out. Is that an issue?
