Wonsuk,

Thanks for the example. I reworked the example a bit and added it to the spec. Feedback welcome !

Hi. All.
Below is the revised example of feature perm. according to the comments from Josh and Tran. 

var featureID = "contacts";

function doSomeThing() {
  // Getting the permission level of the feature identified by 'featureID'
  var response = navigator.permissionLevel(featureID);

  if (response == USER_ALLOWED) {
    // Do something with USER_ALLOWED permission
    getContacts(); // Perform a contacts search
    // ...
  }
  else {
    // Do something with USER_DENIED permission
    alert("This web app will be working except there will be no integration to retrieve "+featureID+" information");
  }
}

// Perform 'doSomeThing' function after requesting a permission for the feature (identified by 'featureID') to the user.
navigator.requestPermission(featureID, doSomeThing);


best regards,
Wonsuk.
