I think most of it is covered by existing work, or not (yet) on the radar.

For the latter stuff, I'm not sure if pointing it out in those documents would be useful. 

However, perhaps if the TAG would establish a "Web Security Roadmap" document (or perhaps just a wiki page), it would be useful, if it were done in close consultation with the browser folks as well as security folk.

It's incomplete, of course, but I don't have any ideas of a path forward that would make it more useful than just as an introduction document to help establish the problem statement for the existing groups in W3C and IETF over web security.
