Ian,

  Thanks for putting this together after exhaustive discussions on this topic. I thought the <device> is a good start for a device selector. I also like the fact that this would allow the UA to decide on the appropriate UI for selection.

Also on your comment about codec, Is there away you can negotiate the formats between the client-server in similar to DLNA?

How do you envision the "type" attribute to evolve as new type of devices become available?

How do you envision your work integrate with Device API WG's current spec? Is there some hand off between your <device> selector and Device API? Or not?

Thanks
Dzung Tran,

Based on the earlier discussion:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-device-apis/2009Dec/0194.html
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-device-apis/2009Dec/thread.html#msg149

...I wrote a draft prototype showing how this could look (these three URLs 
all have the same text, but the first one has more up to date changes when 
I'm actively editing it):

   http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#devices
   http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/commands.html#devices
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-device/

It seems, though, that until we can figure out a codec that all the UAs 
are willing to implement, there's not much we can do to proceed on this, 
so I'm not sure where to go from here.
