Hi Cameron,

I will review your proposal in detail soon.

>>In general this seems fine to me. As long as you help reviewing specifications that use Web IDL :-)
Please bear in mind that there are specs that rely on Web IDL.
E.g. BONDI (http://bondi.omtp.org/1.0/)
defines in Web IDL:
178 methods,
82 constants and
116 attributes
over 68 interfaces
as summarized here:

so stability of the Web IDL spec MAY be important.


Kind regards,

In general this seems fine to me. As long as you help reviewing specifications that use Web IDL :-)
