Agree (though not at all strongly).

Disagree. I believe (like =JeffH) that this should be a separate spec.

Disagree. For the record, I wouldn't be terribly put out by removing the
text regarding add-ons from section 3.3. I do not, however, see good reason
to change Blink's extension-related behavior on this point.

Also: the DOM API isn't in this poll, but is a pretty substantial open
question nonetheless. I think we have two options for 1.1:

1. Flesh out Alex Russell's (http://infrequently.org/2013/05/use-case-zero/)
and Yehuda Katz's (
proposals. They are substantially more interesting than what we have at the
moment. This has been on my plate for months.

2. Kill the DOM API for the moment, and do #1 in 1.2, along with a more
complete integration with ServiceWorkers.

I'd like to do #1, but #2 is probably more realistic. I'll break this out
into a separate thread.
