I think that is a wonderful idea. However. it's important for us to agree on what we would like to propose to Web Platforms. Our group would have to right any extension to the Web App Spec. While we do need to flesh out details of manifest before proposing a change or extension to that spec, I do agree that it's a good idea to look at what they've already done. For example, we have been having a lengthy discussion about titling the WP. That group addresses the issue at [1]

Subject: extending Web app manifest?


We know there's a W3C spec for Web App Manifests [1], which may not be stable nor implemented by all the major browsers, but which has the benefit of existing, being well written, being implemented by some browsers, and being effectively used by real-world web sites (or, in some cases, publications [2]).

So, my question is: before starting to edit our own Manifest spec, as a subsection of the the WP spec, shouldn't we envision the possibility to piggyback on the Web App Manifest spec or somehow extend it?
How to proceed as a WG, do we have a working liaison with the Web Platform WG? (Marcos Caceres, who's the primary editor of the Web App Manifest spec, was pretty thorough in his review of the IG's use cases document, so we know he might ponder what we ponders).
