The "navigator" object is currently specified by HTML5, therefore  
public-html is the right place for Silvia's discussion at present. If  
the Working Group decides to split it into a separate HTML WG spec,  
then this will still be the right place. If the Working Group splits  
into a separate spec and hands it off to some other Working Group,  
then discussion can move to that venue.

Maciej
