Before taking up that discussion, I would like to raise a new issue
perhaps easier to agree upon.

Since telephony user experience of today is consistent with it, I
think it would make sense to have the HW related call controls (audio,
mike, ...) in the context of a telephone call, rather than on the main
telephony interface (where it gives the impression of a system
interface, irrespective of whether is there a telephony service
available or any call in progress - whereas it is should be just a
facade to these system controls from the context of a call).

Therefore I propose moving these controls to a separate interface, and
include it in TelephonyCall.  The WebIDL would become the following:

[NoInterfaceObject]
interface Telephony : EventTarget {
    readonly attribute DOMString[]     ownTelNumbers;
    readonly attribute DOMString[]     emergencyNumbers;
    readonly attribute TelephonyCall   active;
    readonly attribute TelephonyCall[] calls;
    TelephonyCall dial (DOMString number, DialParams params);
    void          startTone (DOMString tone);
    void          stopTone ();
    void          sendTone (DOMString tone);
             attribute EventHandler    onincoming;
             attribute EventHandler    oncallschanged;
};

[NoInterfaceObject]
interface TelephonyMediaControl {
    attribute boolean          speakerEnabled;
    attribute boolean          headsetEnabled;
    attribute double            audioVolume;
    attribute boolean          audioMuted;
    attribute double            micVolume;
    attribute boolean          micMuted;
    /**
     * examples for future extension (remove me)
     * attribute boolean          frontCameraEnabled;
     * attribute boolean          backCameraEnabled;
     * attribute boolean          sendingLocalVideoEnabled;
     * attribute boolean          receivingRemoteVideoEnabled;
     */
}

[NoInterfaceObject]
interface TelephonyCall : EventTarget {
    readonly attribute TelephonyMediaControl controls;
    readonly attribute DOMString    number;
    readonly attribute DOMString    state;
    readonly attribute DOMError     error;
    readonly attribute DOMString?   reason;
    void answer ();
    void disconnect ();
    void hold ();
    void resume ();
    void redirect (DOMString redirectNumber);
             attribute EventHandler onstatechange;
             attribute EventHandler ondialing;
             attribute EventHandler onalerting;
             attribute EventHandler onaccepted;
             attribute EventHandler onconnecting;
             attribute EventHandler onconnected;
             attribute EventHandler ondisconnecting;
             attribute EventHandler ondisconnected;
             attribute EventHandler onholding;
             attribute EventHandler onheld;
             attribute EventHandler onresuming;
             attribute EventHandler onredirecting;
             attribute EventHandler onerror;
};

Best regards,
Zoltan
