Given the reactions in this thread, it seems unlikely that the
WebIDL->EcmaScript language bindings will be transferred from W3C to
ECMA. I reluctantly withdraw the suggestion. If it stays at W3C, I
think a separate public list open to non-members really is needed. If
not or until then, please continue to cc all correspondence about this
language binding to es-discuss.
