I looked at the latest changes [1]. LGTM with one possible nit: Do we want to say "window"? When the separator is a widget, it's a splitter. What is being split may or may not be a window, however.

(Apologies for just now thinking about this, as "window" was in the original proposal too. Also, I don't feel strongly about this; I happened to notice it and am asking.)

Re-assigning to Joseph because I don't think there's anything further I need to do.

Based on the discussion at the Jul 5th AAPI meeting (https://www.w3.org/2016/07/05-aapi-minutes.html#item01), change the mapping to simply say "focusable splitter":
