Hi Art and Chaals,

If possible (depending upon the Webapps agenda fullness) I would like
to propose a 30-60 minute discussion on followup work we have been
pursuing on extending Server-Sent Events for support of Connectionless
Push, as noted in the current SSE draft (the section
http://dev.w3.org/html5/eventsource/#eventsource-push, which resulted
from the last discussion we had on this in Webapps in the 2009 TPAC).
If there is time for this (at least 30 minutes) I can send info in
advance tomorrow, which will describe some approaches we have been
considering, including:
- adding support for additional URI schemes for eventsource, to
indicate additional bearers ("sources") for eventsource events
- processing of events from connectionless Push bearers (SMS, OMA
Push/SMS, and OMA Push in general) using the text/event-stream
processing model
- alternatively, using device-local eventsource server addresses as a
way to seamlessly extend eventsource for these additional bearers,
without impacting the browser
- any other ideas that Webapps members might have on how this can be
achieved with as much consistency with eventsource as possible (even
complete transparency, if possible)

This would be in essence a kickoff discussion of this in Webapps, if
the group overall thinks any of the ideas are well-formed enough to
pursue in some spec form.Otherwise the feedback would be useful
anyway, to help improve the API extension concepts and prototypes we
have been developing for submission to Webapps at the right time.
