Before launching that CG I would like to suggest you stop and take some
time to consider instead taking the idea to the Web Platform Incubator
Community Group (WICG).

  https://www.w3.org/community/wicg/

The WICG already has 139 participants, including multiple representatives
from all the major browser-engine projects. So if the goals of the Hardware
Based Secure Services effort include developing an API to be natively
implemented in browsers, many of the browser-engine reps and other people
who could help you—people experienced with making new Web-technologies
ideas into reality—are already gathered together in the WICG exactly for
the purpose of incubating ideas like this one.

I think you will have difficulty attracting a similar level of
participation from browser implementors to an entirely new CG, so I really
think you should seriously consider taking it to the WICG first. That would
not preclude you from later launching a new specific CG for it after it has
matured further.
