Hello Giuseppe,

I have some concerns about the sudden appearance of a nexus between Web Intents and Home Network requirements in developed in the HNTF.

I donít recall Web Intents topic ever being discussed in HNTF and would have some significant concerns with merging the Web Intents and Home Network scopes.

If Web Intents aspires to be compatible at some level with Home Networks thatís fine. If there is a suggestion that Web Intents is a primary (only) discovery mechanism for home-networks thatís not so fine.

Let me start by saying that Web Intents service-centric architecture is contrary to Home Networks device-centric architecture. This will potentially limit the types of HN devices which could be offered.

I think HNTF may want to continue to meet until there is a consensus on the disposition of the TF's work!

Regards,
Russell Berkoff
