not wanting to denegrate the solution or the concept, it's good
(indeed I recently worked on a contract producing a window manager in
HTML+css+js)  but I do not think it's a good example of a
web-application for the WHAT-WG - A window manager is not an
application we should be enabling, window manager authoring is far
from trivial, and a javascript UI can never know the paradigms the
user is used to in their window manager.

Or was it some specific areas of the app framework you considered of relevance?
