Re: Proposal to add Mouse Lock to the Web Events Working Group

Hi Vincent, All - given there were no negative comments regarding 
Vincent's proposal, Doug and I will work toward updating WebEvents' 
charter to add the Mouse Lock API.

Additionally, as indicated in [1], we will also work toward adding the 
Gamepad API [2] (formerly know as the Joystick API) to WebEvents' charter.
