Given the spec's implementation status today, perhaps it would be "best" 
to postpone new features and to plan for a potential followup spec. 
Regardless, I think it is important to document new and/or additional 
features and requirements beyond what is now specified. The IDB people 
document their feature requests for IDB.Next in [IDB-Features]. Perhaps 
it would be useful to have a similar document for PointerLock.

If you want to document new features/requirements [and I recommend it 
;-)], besides using a wiki (f.ex. 
https://www.w3.org/wiki/Webapps/PointerLockFeatures), other options 
include using Bugzilla (I think WebIDL uses a "v2" value for the 
`whiteboard` field) or a document in the spec's repo.

(If you want to use a wiki, I'm willing to bootstrap it.)

-Thanks, AB
