Hi!

CC Ben, it's posts like yours that constitute the hope of the open web. A
truly great initiative!

Everybody else who reads this, let's put our weight behind Ben, and help
him with this. Let's team together with mozilla, google and w3c, and be one
web with one manifest format. Please read this thread as a starting point:

http://groups.google.com/group/mozilla-labs/browse_thread/thread/29d186bd2f3580e4

If the json scares you, just imagine the xml syntax with your mind. I'm not
joking, it really is what I do the other way around when i read xml, and it
really helps to bridge gaps between the author of a spec and you as a
reader. Even if this group will use xml, then we can still make sure there
is a one-to-one mapping with the json manifests used by mozilla and google.
(see xrd and jrd, or linked data and json-ld, for examples of such
mappings). Marcos already hinted at this possibility in one of his blog
posts.

Let's do it! Let's join forces and be 'the one web'.


Cheers,
Michiel
