Hi Richard, all,

My opinion is that such convenience methods is useful (can lead to fewer
lines of code). I would prefer the second choice over the first among
the two options below.

Regards,
Suresh

Subject: [contacts] Extending the Contacts.create() method

Hi,

Just documenting some thoughts on improving the Contacts.create(...)
method [1] to allow for additional contact attributes to be specified at
object creation.

The method could be overloaded as follows:

interface Contacts {
    Contact   create (in DOMString name);
    Contact   create (in ContactProperties options);
    // ... Other methods
};

Or it could be extended with optional additional contact attributes as
follows:

interface Contacts {
    Contact   create (in DOMString name, in optional ContactProperties
options);
    // ... other methods
};

Any feedback on the best approach, or whether the current simple
create(...) method [1] is sufficient is welcome :-)

Kind Regards,

Richard
