OK and thanks!

A few comments:

* One thing I find a bit confusing is the 12 (various) uses of 
"framework". In some cases that term seems to be about the 
methodology/process the effort will use and in other cases, it wasn't 
clear to me. Perhaps it would be helpful to define that term for its 
most common usage for the context of this document and/or replace it 
with "what is `really` meant for the specific context".

* Re "Prioritization provides an independent, community-wide means to 
ensure that Web developers are addressing key problems" - I don't 
understand "Web developers" in this context. (It seems like this effort 
is more about making sure the consortium is addressing key problems Web 
developers have.)

* Section 3. Mapping to native platforms - since Dom and the Web Mobile 
IG have done quite a bit of work in this area (f.ex. gap analysis 
<https://github.com/w3c-webmob/web-api-gap>), this document should 
clarify what this effort is going to do vis--vis related work in the IG.

* I'm trying to understand this effort's `end game` i.e. specific 
output(s) envisioned. F.ex. "the group will consider this effort a 
success if it ...". The closest thing I could find is a survey for AC 
reps and a survey for the Public (I added this later item). But that now 
begs Qs about the surveys envisioned. For instance, is this group of ten 
going to propose specific high priority work items and (via the surveys) 
ask the AC and Public to `verify` this group's agreement; or is the idea 
more about using data/info gathered to create a survey that asks the AC 
and Public about priorities; or something else?

* The relationship between this effort and Michael's 
should at least be mentioned/referenced and even better would be to 
state what (if any) relationship there is between the two efforts.

-Thanks, AB
