The "Upgrade Insecure Requests" specification[1] references the WHATWG HTML
spec for the
"set up a worker environment settings object" algorithm[2], as the Web
Workers Candidate Recommendation from May 2012[3] substantially predates
the entire concept of a "settings object", and because the WHATWG is the
group where work on Workers seems to be being done.

This referential choice was flagged during a discussion of transitioning
the Upgrade spec to CR, where it was noted that the Web Workers editor's
draft from May 2014 does contain the referenced concept[4].

It seems appropriate, then, to bring the question to this group: does
WebApps intend to update the Workers draft in TR? If so, is there a path
forward to aligning the Workers document with the work that's happened over
the last year and a half in WHATWG? Alternatively, does WebApps intend to
drop work on Workers in favor of the WHATWG's document?

It would be helpful if we could get some clarity here. :)
