Re: ACTION-291: Next steps on ACTION-279

I am sorry for any misunderstanding that has arisen here.  What may not 
have been clear is that in this particular area, I did not actually have 
firsthand knowledge of the facts, and my note (addressed to Henry and cc: 
to www-tag) was intended primarily to ask him to follow up as appropriate. 

Given that this confusion has arisen, I did check with some of the TAG 
members who have been more directly involved, including Henry.  They 
concur with you that there was followup to your original posting, but they 
remain concerned that those responses didn't seem (to us, anyway) to 
include the sort of point-by-point clarification that would directly 
resolve the concerns raised.  In particular, there are questions as to how 
the various security-related issues which commentators had raised with 
respect to CORS had in fact been addressed.  Do you in fact have a 
tabulation of issues raised and their resolution?  (We would expect that 
something of this sort would in any case be needed when you come to the 
transition to Candidate Recommendation from Last Call.)

Also, although we understand that at one level announcements of 
implementations in shipping or soon-to-ship browser releases is an 
encouraging endorsement, and while avoiding unnecessary disruption to such 
implementations is of great value, such early adopter experimentation 
should not prevent careful evaluation and development of standards that 
will best meet the long term needs of the community.  So, while we 
appreciate and are sensitive to the concerns of those who implement early, 
we want also to be sure that the design proposed is indeed appropriate for 
the final Recommendation.

Again, I apologize for any confusion that may have been caused by my 
original note.

If I view that as a thread it seems there were quite a bit of replies. Am 
I missing something?
