Hello Rich,

I enjoyed reviewing the latest draft "Network Service Discovery and Messaging". My interpretation of the API is that it is strictly list of services provided without details of the device or "device descriptor" in UPnP terms. In the last example there is an example of how a drop down list of model can be used to select different devices. It is not clear how this is achieved with the given API since first attribute it simply "type".

My recommendation is to add a means to list the equivalent of UPnP device descriptor which includes information like friendly name, manufacturer, model name, model information, etc.

Best regards,
JanL
