I can think of either the FOMS wiki, the Xiph wiki, the Mozilla wiki,
or even the WHATWG wiki. Seeing as this has implications for HTML5, I
would actually consider the WHATWG wiki the right place (also see the
blurb on http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Main_Page).
Jeroen - I would suggest you put it there and we can all continue to
discuss it here and continue to improve it. When we're ready, we can
send an email to the WHATWG mailing list with a reference.
