Re: HTML Speech XG Completes, seeks feedback for eventual standardization

Hi Dan,

WebApps already has a relatively large number of specs in progress (see 
[PubStatus]) and the group has agreed to add some additional specs (see 
[CharterChanges]). As such, please provide a relatively specific 
proposal about the features/specs you and other proponents would like to 
add to WebApps.

Regarding the level of detail for your proposal, I think a reasonable 
precedence is something like the Gamepad and Pointer/MouseLock proposals 
(see [CharterChanges]). (Perhaps this could be achieved by identifying 
specific sections in the XG's Final Report?)
