Since Jonas (surprisingly) wasn't among the browser vendors you 
discussed this with, I'd be interested to know who you discussed it 
with, what precisely their feedback was, and the justifications and use 
cases they explained.  I want XBL2 to succeed, so I think we should all 
get on the same page about it.

To that end, could you provide a link to the requirements document, or 
if there isn't one, could you start one?
