WebApps has a document in LC that depends on it (Widgets 1.0: The  
widget interface), and it's a really trivial document to test  we  
don't expect it to be long before we can transition, but it is  
blocking on its dependency on WebIDL. I'd say it's at most one month  
before its progress is hampered by process alone.

It's too early to tell but DAP has some low-hanging fruits that I  
would expect it to be possible to make quick progress on (famous last  
words  I know). Here we're looking at a 3-6 months window.
