While I agree with browsers as our first and foremost priority, I'd
rather have the standard worded in such a way that it does not exclude
other UAs a priori. So yes, we already have a lot of work to dowith the
browser alone and should not bother overly much with other UAs, just
let's have a standard that is a robust starting point for future
conversations on other types of UAs.

I was going to ask David Wainberg as well, but I really would like to
know why nobody on the industry side of the table is pushing harder for
SAME-PARTY for this purpose. Why not use that?
