Per our charter <>: "The Web
Performance Working Group's scope of work includes user agent features and
APIs to observe and improve aspects of application performance". We
intentionally do not target a particular type of user or site, as the goal
is to improve performance broadly across the web and for all users on the
web. As such, I would personally consider it a failure if the solutions and
proposals we come up with are only able to benefit, or be used by, a small
subset of sites or motivated perf geeks.

Yep, fair. Would love to hear your thoughts on what those are and their
relative priority.. Albeit, probably a conversation we should push to
GitHub so we can keep track and iterate on details.
