I can't provide consensus of the group without asking them what that might be, but the understanding I have as WebAPI chair is that WebAPI does Web APIs in general, but there is no reason we need to take over something language-specific that is in some other group, unless they ask and we have resources to do so...

So I don't see any particular problem with the HTML WG defining HTML-specific APIs in particular (and reviewed the charter with that question among others in my mind). Andif you want the Web API group to take on new deliverables, you wil probably need to volunteer up the manpower to do the work - we are somethwat stretched as it is.
