[ Was: Re: [charter] Addressable Ranges? ]

Doug proposes WebApps include a Robust Anchoring API in its charter and 
this is a CfC to do so. The specific proposed addition is below and it 
includes this API being a joint spec with the proposed Web Annotations 
WG (draft charter is [1]).

If you have any comments or concerns about this proposal, please send 
them by June 23 at the latest.

-Thanks, AB
