Yes, we originally wanted to avoid service workers - because it might 
not be where you want the application logic to live - like say you 
want to write to a tag. On the other hand, Service Workers makes a lot
 of sense for offline handling etc.

The question is basically how we would handle registration for events 
when the page is not available. In some ways this is similar to the 
earlier Web Intents and Web Activations (from moz).

openWindow was recently added to Service Workers for dealing with 
"page activation" from a notification, so if we go for Service 
Workers, it might be an option.

Having NFC handling live in two places (page and service worker) seems
 confusing though, and I am not sure the API will be very user 
friendly if we move all of it to the Service Worker.

Any API suggestion to how this could work are of course welcome!
