This isn't relevant to the topic of this thread - the dap sensor api - since clearly the feedback is that the WG would rather have a direct api and doesn't want to use web intents.

But the webintents taskforce is enabling more general use of webintents than simply sandboxed app to sandboxed app.  The UA or UA/extension can provide the service end.  They're looking at use cases that can do things like send commands to devices on local networks.  E.g. turn on a light or control a vcr.  So services are not limited to what can already be done in a web app.
