Plan to progress "wake lock"/"standby API"

To: W3C Device APIs WG <public-device-apis@w3.org>
The “Call for potential DAP charter additions” completed with general agreement on interest in one item, the “wake lock”/“standby API”.

I propose that we can begin work on this item under the existing charter[1], as it can be considered part of the existing deliverable  

"An API to react to a device power status.”

The reason is that the purpose of the wake lock API is to  “prevent a device from entering a power-saving state”, clearly related to reacting to device power status.

The alternative would be a more lengthy re-chartering, which I do not believe is necessary in this case.

This approach means that the WG would work on an editors draft, then agree to a FPWD transition. 

Please indicate any support or concern with this approach to go forward.

Thanks

regards, Frederick
