I tried to omit items that I knew to be renames or splits of a draft  
in the old charter. I may have missed some, especially in the case of  
Widgets where I'm not up to speed on what is in the specs. I believe  
at least the first three were written from scratch without  
incorporating text from any previous draft.

But now that I think about it, renames should be called to the charter  
reviewers' attention as well. Here are the splits and renames I am  
aware of:

Web SQL Database --> split from Web Storage
File API --> formerly File Upload; the charter mentions this already
Widgets Packaging and Configuration --> formerly Widgets 1.0:  
Packaging and Configuration
The Widget Interface --> formerly Widgets 1.0: APIs and Events
Widgets Digital Signature --> formerly Widgets 1.0: Digital Signature
Widgets Updates --> formerly Widgets 1.0: Updates

Even if not included in the charter itself, it would probably be  
useful to bring this information to the AC's attention (as well as any  
splits or renames I may have missed).
