I'm looking for a path that leads to cross-browser agreement and
publication. *shrug* There's no particular rush, but since it sounds like
there's at least partial agreement on the general shape and direction of
the API, it would be nice to get a draft published in the relatively near
future in the hopes of raising visibility and focusing discussion (as well
as the general IPR excitement that published drafts tend to cover).

Whichever group ends up being the right one for eventual publication,
public-webapps@ seems like a good place for discussion; the right folks are
probably already here. :)

Another option would be to create a new a new CG (although I suppose there

I guess that's an option.
