Also, note the status of existing issues. My assessment says the remaining open issues are considered minor, except issue #41 that suggests extensions to HTMLMediaElement and HTMLVideoElement interfaces; would be good to note this explicitly to attract further feedback and suggestions during wide review. Let me know if you feel the same.

I'll do that.

OK, we should probably assess privacy and security implications, typically using the self-evaluation questionnaires, before getting in touch with privacy and security groups.

Also, note the APA working group already initiated a review on their side in July-August which concluded with "no issues":
https://www.w3.org/WAI/APA/wiki/Remote_Playback_API

We will probably want to reach out to the Web Platform WG for review as well, but it may be worth waiting until we have made progress on #41, which touches on media algorithms.


> All - please let us know by 2 November if you feel the spec should not advance to wide review, and please include your reasons. Silence is considered consent. We'll try to publish a new WD on 3 November followed by a wide review request soon after.

That's fine with me.

Thanks,
Francois.
