As previously mentioned on [p-w], the test results for Web Messaging 
[All] indicate significant interoperability with only two tests that 
have less than two passes [<2]. The two tests, including a short 
analysis of the failure, are:

1. <http://www.w3c-test.org/webmessaging/with-ports/026.html>; this test 
failure (which passes on Firefox) can be considered more of a Web IDL 
implementation issue and thus not a significant interop issue.

2. <http://www.w3c-test.org/webmessaging/without-ports/025.html>; this 
test failure (which passes on IE) is considered an implementation bug 
(MessageChannel and MessagePort are supposed to be exposed to Worker) 
that is expected to be fixed.

Cindy created a Draft PR [PR] that includes Hixie's updates since the 
[CR] was published (but not the PortCollection interface [PC] which is 
not broadly implemented). Overall, we consider the changes since the CR 
as non-substantive bug fixes and clarifications that align the spec with 
current implementations, and that the test suite tests the updated spec. 
See [Diff] for all of changes between the CR and the draft PR and note 
the draft PR's status section includes a short summary of the changes.

As such, this is a Call for Consensus to publish a Proposed 
Recommendation of Web Messaging using the [PR] as the basis. Agreement 
with this CfC means you consider the test results shows interoperability 
and the changes since CR are not substantive.

If you have any comments or concerns about this CfC, please reply to 
this e-mail by March 28 at the latest. Positive response is preferred 
and encouraged, and silence will be considered as agreement with the 
proposal. If there are no non-resolvable objections to this proposal, 
the motion will carry and we will request the PR be published.

-Thanks, ArtB
