The W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG) has published a First Public Working Group Note of Web Platform Design Principles. This document contains a set of design principles to be used when designing Web Platform technologies. These principles have been collected during the Technical Architecture Group’s discussions in reviewing developing specifications. We encourage specification designers to read this document and use it as a resource when making design decisions.
