Some comments from elsewhere include #95 (comment), w3ctag/design-reviews#108, the minutes from Thursday 2016 July 28 TAG meeting. Major concerns raised there include:

  • security issues related to attacks on devices that, once compromised, could be used to attack the user's computer more generally
  • the permissions model (whether a question can be posed to the user that yields informed consent, whether there should be a CORS-like model for devices to say that they want to interact with particular domains which may improve security but hurts openness)
