My sense is that there may be a significant number of people who 1)
are interested enough in various browser security problems that can be
addressed by in-browser language-based object-capabilities, including
mashup and crippled web-app problems, but 2) are not interested enough
in general object-capability issues to join cap-talk. Even if they did
join, the occasional large volume on cap-talk would, I suspect, cause
too many of them to stop paying attention, when they might continue to
pay attention to a more focused discussion.
Since the proposed mechanisms will be specific to language-based
object-capabilities, e-lang would be more plausible than cap-talk
anyway, and e-lang does have a much lower volume lately. However, I
would have the same concern: That the occasional flurry of discussion
about issues not relevant to browser security might lose the attention
of this audience.
