I believe this is because a Security Element based on smart card concepts
like GP (GlobalPlatform) doesn't really work on the Internet.

There are already hundreds of millions of EMV-cards out there and they
never got a connection to the Internet either.

A positive outcome for an SE API standard seems farther away than ever.
