Hey all,

Per previous conversations, it looks like now would be a great time for
others here to give our draft feedback on the Permissions API a look:

/me puts TAG hat on

I'm grateful for Mounir's work on updating the design based on feedback. I
think it's getting better *VERY* quickly.

Given the time constraints, I spent some time over the weekend updating the
TAG feedback based on the latest draft
The other TAG members (and the list) need to weigh in (I'll circulate it
today to get input ASAP), but I think it covers the bases.

The biggest issues are:

   - The "string-ness" of the status value. I worry about the ability to
   model the full set of permissions without a more extensible type and it
   will be hard to retrofit later
   - Lack of reflection for the majority of web platform permissions
   - An inability to enumerate which permissions are supported by the API
