This is a response to Bert Bos' review [1] of the Widgets 1.0
Requirements document [2].

We have yet to evaluate the appropriateness of any of those
technologies listed to what is actually used in the wild (eg. I have
not seen any widgets use CC/PP or make effective use of Media
Queries). As you have suggested, there are currently a number of
working groups looking at the issue of APIs for accessing device
services/capabilities. We currently feel that specifying APIs that
access services on devices are out of scope for WAF but will continue
to monitor what other groups are doing (particularly those at the W3C
and OMA in regards to Delivery Contexts).
