> We want to standardize some of the "Concrete APIs" discussed at last
> December's Device API workshop [1]. More specifically, we propose
> creating specifications for the following APIs:
>
> 1. Calendar
> 2. Camera
> 3. Contacts (aka Address Book)
> 4. Messaging
> 5. System Information
>
> For each of the above APIs, I attached a separate input and an
> appendix that includes common definitions shared by some of these
> APIs. We offer these inputs, under the terms of the W3C Patent
> Policy, as a starting point (strawman proposals) for the
> standardization effort.
>
> We also propose the attached draft Charter for a new Working Group
> whose deliverables will include these APIs.
>
> If the W3C agrees to add these APIs to a WG Charter, we will commit
> resources to drive the specification work including the Editor role.
