Hi all,

I'm working on a NFC draft, and we'd like the Secure Elements API to 
stay on the table for phase 2 indeed. Basically all payment-related NFC 
use cases require some S.E. API.

I just joined the sysapps group a couple weeks ago mostly to review the 
existing S.E. APIs and try to make sure it works well with the NFC API. 
I'm only getting started for now, but I'd be glad to review and provide 
editorial help for the S.E. draft.
