We've actually proposed it to the webapps list, but got little to no
response. I'm not sure if we at this time have anyone that would have
the resources to offer to be editor for a W3C CSP spec, if any of the
WGs there are interested to host it.

So in short, yes, we'd love to have it standardized, but so far
haven't found a path to make that practically happen.

But, as Mike said, we'd love to get feedback, and we'd love to get it
now. So far most of the feedback we've gotten has been "looks
interesting" which we take as a pretty good sign, but a little lacking
in detail :)
