I imagine that WHATWG contributors (probably including myself) will be 
taking part in this work, in so far that it remains in line with our goals 
(clean migration paths, backwards compatibility with deployed content and 
UAs, forwards compatibility with future content and UAs, ease of authoring 
and implementing, and so forth).

It is encouraging to note that the Web Apps WG's charter explicitly states 
that the Web Apps WG will be trying to work closely with the WHATWG, so we 
should look forwards to hearing from the Web Apps WG in this mailing list.

(Just out of interest, where did you see the announcement? It has been W3C 
member-confidential for some time, but I did not know that the W3C had 
publicly announced it and could not find any mention of it on their site.)
