--- Comment #15 from Matthias Kovatsch <kovatsch@inf.ethz.ch> ---
This is a good first step to get CoAP support into the browser. Ian, we had a
discussion via e-mail a few months ago and one main problem that came up was
the security model. With this approach, security is handled by the cross-proxy
and the browser does not introduce new vulnerabilities.
Thus, I would +1 this proposal.

I do have a question, however, what this protocol handler will cover, as I can
only find information about links. Will it also work in other elements such as
iframes or forms? What about the XMLHttpRequest object?
These things would be needed to actually mash things up.
