I can't on top of my head come up with anything that could possibly be
more difficult uniting vendors around.  If you for example want to
do something with smart cards you typically have to sign an NDA.

Trying to squeeze in GlobalPlatform, TPMs, PIV, etc. in an API and calling
that a standard will give a completely new meaning to the word standard :-)

Due to this, I have come to the conclusion that it is faster, better,
and less politically awkward starting in the opposite end:

    Defining a truly "webbish" Security Element.
