Is there interest in separate sessions for Mozilla Cairoification and for exposing future platform graphics capabilities? (That is, once we have cairo, how do we let xul/web content get at it?) -- Vlad

Any interest in a session for talking about 3D and the web? I know the canvas people are thinking of adding 3D, and some XML/DOM format might be useful too. -- tor

I'd like to see a chat about places, and like to learn what other folks plan for RDF. -- Axel
