Last-minute addition to Monday's Agenda

The WebAppSec group is considering the publication of a FPWD for a
Credentials API by Google (Mike West).

The API is very concerning as it puts the browsers completely in control
of credential storage (with no synchronization story) and it won't cover
high-stakes credentials (such as ones needed for KYC) that need to be
shared between websites.

This could really throw a wrench in this group's suggestion that a
Credentials WG is created at W3C. It would also harm the creation of a
unified credentials API that seems to be a requirement for many of the
use cases in this group.

Unfortunately, WebAppSec sent out a Call for Consensus last Friday wrt.
a Credentials API FPWD which closes on April 17th (end of this week).

Chairs, could we please put this on the Agenda ASAP. We need to respond
to the CfC before this Friday.
