Hi All - FYI, below is a thread started by Scott Graham re creating a 
Joystick API standard [1]. I am forwarding Scott's email to the Web 
Events WG's list since some people suggested this WG would be a 
reasonable place to create a W3C standard for this API.

Scott - when you have created the "rough strawman" you referred to in 
[2], please notify the public-webevents@w3.org list.

Hello,

I noticed that Mozilla has started to prototype support for Joystick
events. There's some documentation on this effort
https://wiki.mozilla.org/JoystickAPI as well as a prototype
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=604039

I'm also interested in adding support for joysticks to Chromium and so
would like to open the discussion up to a broader audience. Do others
see this as a valuable API? Or have comments on the design?
