I attended the Remote User Interfaces BoF [1] at the Paris IETF and 
presented [2] on W3C's work on multimodal interaction as well as 
dynamic adaption to the delivery context. At the end of the BoF 
there was general agreement that it would be worth continuing
discussions on a possible charter via the RemoteUI mailing list [3].

A lightweight protocol for conveying DOM events and updates would 
complement W3C work, e.g. on multimodal interaction architecture [4] 
and delivery context interfaces [5]. Such a protocol would have much 
broader utility than the visual widgets use case envisaged in the 
current draft charter as proposed by Vlad Stirbu (Nokia).

I an anticipate continued discussion on firming up the details, e.g. 
on what is appropriate for realising the DOM event capture/bubble 
model in a distributed context, and what constraints are needed to 
simplify protocol support for synchronizing DOM updates. Layering 
this on SIP looks like a sensible route to achieving critical mass. 
I am hoping that a rough consensus on the charter can be reached by 
October or November this year, and am enthusiastic about the 
potential benefits to the Web.
