To mitigate potential confusion around the subject, I added the following note at the top of the now discontinued Feature Permissions draft [1] with a link pointing to the latest Web Notifications draft [2]:

[[

The Device APIs Working Group decided to discontinue work on the Feature Permissions draft as the only immediately obvious relevant use case is for Web Notifications. Any follow-up discussions should happen on the public-web-notifications mailing list.

]]

I also updated the DAP WG home page to reflect the change. Let me know if there are any concerns.

Btw. Am I right in assuming that [2] is the authoritative Web Notifications ED, and [3] is out-of-date? If so, should we get rid of [3]?
