I updated the Editor's Draft to provide the following hooks:

http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/vibration/#dfn-vibration-pattern
http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/vibration/#dfn-validate-and-normalize
http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/vibration/#dfn-perform-vibration

Please help me fix any spec bugs, and let me know if you need something else to make the spec more reusable.

Btw. I'm happy to see Notifications API get more capable, integrate with other nifty features on the Web Platform such as vibration ;-)

Thanks,
