[whatwg] Request for HTML.next ideas

Note: while this email is intentionally cross-posted; my request is that 
any responses trim the replies down to *one* of the above lists.


At the present time within the HTML WG, there are no surveys active, and 
no calls for proposals.  Some are actively working on converging to 
fewer active proposals for issue 152.  The editors have some changes to 
apply before we proceed to Last Call.  The chairs still have some 
surveys and proposals to evaluate.

Meanwhile, this may be a good time for others to begin to capture ideas 
for what comes after HTML5.  I know that the WHATWG has ideas for some 
features and even has some speculative specification text beyond what 
can make the deadline for HTML5.  I doubt the A11y team has exhausted 
their wish list.

At this time, I would like to request that people capture their ideas here:


Ideas don't need to be fully fleshed out.  In fact, in many cases a 
simple pointer to a proposal or even a discussion hosted elsewhere is 
all that is needed at this time.

There isn't a hard deadline on this request, but we anticipate that the 
data captured will be discussed at the next AC meeting which goes from 
the 15th of May to the 17th of May.
