The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'Call for Review:
Service Workers Working Group Charter' (Advisory Committee) for Mozilla
Foundation by David Baron.


The reviewer's organization suggests changes to this Charter, and only
supports the proposal if the changes are adopted [Formal Objection].

Additional comments about the proposal:
   We object to the inclusion of the background synchronization and
background fetch deliverables because we don't currently see a path to
getting informed user consent to background script execution and background
network activity in a way that is non-intrusive and doesn't lead to abuse. 
We remain interested in Service Workers, and are willing to pursue a
variant of Background Fetch that doesn't allow for script execution.  We're
willing to continue discussions on whether there is a path forward for (in
increasing order of likely difficulty) background fetch, background sync,
and periodic background sync.  We would consider the acceptance of the PR
in https://github.com/w3c/charter-drafts/pull/248 (which is the result of
discussions that have happened during the review period) to address these
concerns.


The reviewer's organization intends to participate in these groups:
   - Service Workers Working Group

The reviewer's organization:
   - intends to review drafts as they are published and send comments.
   - intends to develop experimental implementations and send experience
reports.
