[webcomponents] Editable Web Components

Web Applications Working Group,

Greetings.  I would like to broach some ideas for web components including in response to Web Components in 2014 (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps/2014JanMar/0338.html).  The ideas pertain to web components (http://www.w3.org/TR/components-intro/ , http://www.polymer-project.org/) and HTML5 editing (http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/editing.html).

Component technologies have included runtime and designtime modes.  Solutions for editable components include designtime, or editable, document object models and shadow document object models, where nested runtime web components could map to nested designtime web components.  Other solutions include web intents (http://webintents.org/ , http://webintents.org/edit) and other implementations towards OLE (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Object_Linking_and_Embedding) or OpenDoc (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenDoc) functionality.

Scenarios for editable web components include wiki technologies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki , http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia_templates , http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Advanced_templates).

I would like to also introduce the Collaborative Software Community Group (http://www.w3.org/community/groups/proposed/#collaboration) and to welcome others to support the group as well as to participate.  The mission of the Collaborative Software Community Group is to provide a forum for experts in collaborative software and groupware for technical discussions, gathering use cases and requirements to align the existing formats, software, platforms, systems and technologies (e.g. wiki technology) with those used by the Open Web Platform. The goal is to ensure that the requirements of collaborative technology and groupware can be answered, when in scope, by the Recommendations published by W3C. This group is chartered to publish documents when doing so can enhance collaborative technology and groupware. The goal is to cooperate with relevant groups and to publish documents to ensure that the requirements of the collaborative software and groupware community are met.

Kind regards,

Adam Sobieski
