Although this forum seems to have died, there are actually quite a bunch of
issues out there worth discussions, including a recent request from Tim B-L:
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2015Sep/0000.html

Plugins, Apps etc.
==============
One topic is the deprecation of "plugins" which was an unilateral decision taken
by the browser-vendors without consulting the "market", W3C etc. The net
effect is that millions of people had to move from the Web to Apps.

Web Payments vs. SOP
===================
Although the Web Payment WG haven't started yet, my contacts with developers
indicate that they envision a browser-based wallet-interface that will NOT adhere
to SOP.  This clashes with what for example the TAG folks consider as appropriate.

BTW, there are rumors about some kind of hardware security WG; is there any
information available about this?
