Hi all,
I apologize if this is a question that's been asked and answered, I just
recently joined the group.

I'm working with embedded scripts and objects, and right now we're using
iframes and query strings to get the data into the embedded script.

However, it would be much more semantically logical if we could make use of
the object tag and it's associated params to do the same thing. Are there
any plans to develop a recommendation around an API for html/javascript
pages embedded via object tags to access the param tags? Something akin to
window.parent.postMessage, like window.parent.objectParams and it returns
an array?

Thanks, and I apologize again if this is a closed topic.
