Hi Mounir,

The proposal was made by Microsoft for IME API, which is being discussed
separately

I'm new to WHATWG and not sure how to make modifications to the spec.

I'd hope people from Microsoft join this discussion, but from our
perspective we agree that
we would like to go with mode and script separately.
