It's not restricted to crypto, it works for any smartcard and nfc chip. Those
are often used for crypto, true, but not exclusively. It could be used to read
out and write to nfc  tags, GSM SIM cards, payment cards, ... all from a web
application without having to use java applets. In the java world, this API is
located under javax.* instead of javax.security.

Having said that, I am not sure where this feature request should be filed.
Where are other Javascript API's like geolocation, web storage, etc ..."born"?
What is the right way to get this feature up for discussion? 

Thanks in advance for any advice or help!
