CfC: Transition "Secure Contexts" to CR; deadline October 1st.

BCC: www-tag@, public-webapps@, public-privacy@, public-geolocation@,

Hello, WebAppSec! Two weeks ago, I noted that Secure Contexts was pretty
much done, and ready to review (
I've made some changes to the doc based on feedback during that period
(thanks mostly to Anne), and I think we're close enough to call it done and
see if anyone points out crazy things I've missed. :)

This is a call for consensus to transition to Candidate Recommendation with
the document at:

The core of the specification is already implemented in Chrome and Firefox,
and is used in a number of specifications to gate certain features (like
Service Workers) to contexts which offer guarantees about their usage. I
expect those implementations can align with the specification fairly
quickly, and I don't believe anything in the document needs to be marked as
"at risk".

As discussed on public-webapps@, this document references WHATWG documents
in several places where the W3C version is out of date. A list of the
referenced terms are available for review at

The deadline for this CfC is one week from today, October 1st. As always,
explicit (positive!) feedback to is appreciated!
