I have reviewed Dan's email. I think this is a really interesting and important direction to pursue web security, and I support further work in this area; it reads on many of the elements that the TAG is faced with.

However, I think the likelihood that the TAG itself will make substantial progress on this topic is very small. There are lots of loose ends, and the theoretical nature of the work doesn't match the TAG's capability to do work in weekly phone calls and occasional meetings.

In fact, I think the direction Dan outlines would make a pretty good thesis proposal. If there was some way of encouraging the security research community to take this up, I would support that as a TAG action.
