Hi All, 
As today's teleconf was attended by Tobie, Dom, Ilya, and I, we decided to only focus on the Wake Lock API use cases. We had an informal chat about what we have found so far and if we had use cases that were strong enough to proceed towards standardization. The initial analysis - although limited to a small set of native apps - yielded some fairly convincing use cases. Most notable for me at least was the "Brazil 2014" World Cup iOS app, which prevents the screen from dimming while it's receiving updates for the duration of a game. When a game finishes, the application releases the wake lock and allows the app to go to sleep. It's pretty nicely done and great if you are just keeping the phone next to you while a game is happening.    

Of course, there are other great examples - cooking apps, media players, ebook readers, mapping/navigation applications, healthcare apps, etc. (see [GitHub]) that the community contributed that all rely on preventing the screen from dimming to provide an optimum experience. Dom and I will document these and use that as the basis for standardization of the Wake Lock API - which Ilya and I have agreed to Edit together in the DAP WG.  

If you would like to help with documenting the use cases: 

If you would like to participate in the standardization:

[Github] - list of apps we need to document. Add your own or help us document those!
