Based on comments coming from many developers, we are exploring
possibilities to make NFC usable for web apps in a simplified way,
that can be supported in browsers, using the browser security model.

The intent is to encapsulate low level NFC details into
implementations as much as possible, figure out what are the key use
cases for web applications, and expose only the [processed] NFC
content to interested applications.

As a first attempt to address these, the NFC draft specification has changed:

It begs for reviews and comments.

As low level NFC features are not exposed any more to web apps,
related use cases suffer. If you have such use cases which are hurt by
the new API, and would like to have continued support for them, please
write here and file issues on github:

Best regards,
