Hi Anne,

I note that the HTML WG charter says:

The following features are expected to be obtained by integrating 
deliverables of the <http://www.w3.org/2007/03//2006/webapi/>Web APIs 
Working Group. They are listed here so that they may be developed in 
the case where the Web APIs Working Group is not able to produce the 
    * Data storage APIs.
    * Networking APIs for server-push, asynchronous two-way 
client-server communication, peer-to-peer communication, and 
client-side cross-domain communication.
Where are those things currently addressed? I looked a bit in a few 
different places, but was unable to determine whether or not they 
were there. See also 
for context concerning data storage. The peer to peer question just 
arose, since I have some students trying to build some peer-to-peer 
web stuff and the hassle of brokering each transaction through the 
server is just a bit annoying (with the pull vs. push approach). As I 
say, it may all be covered somewhere and I'm just missing it.

Also, I note that http://www.w3.org/TR/rex/ and 
http://www.w3.org/TR/file-upload/ do not load properly in IE6 (source 
code is displayed instead of HTML).
