MarkFo - thanks for sharing this announcement with the group -- early implementation experience and feedback is very helpful. Please feel free to add this to the WG's implementation status wiki (login with you W3C Account) so people who may be looking for something to hack on will find it easily:

Please let the group know of rough edges (or unspecified parts) in the spec you unearth while prototyping, and for bonus points with suggestions on how to address them :-)

Thanks,

-Anssi
