In the session, I signed up to help get the spec across the finish line. 
I'm also going to do my best to write up something resembling a user 
story so that we're all on the same page about what this is, what it 
isn't and what comes next.

I probably will not have the time to actually implement the code - but 
if the PWG can help us get resources allocated to this I'll be happy to 
help them.
