Given that the Device APIs group has "an API to manage vibration" in its Charter [2] I believe it makes sense to look at this topic in this group soonish. For this reason, I added Vibrator API as one of the potential topics for the upcoming TPAC F2F [3].

Given an "API to manage vibration" is an explicit deliverable for DAPI, 
I think the conclusion re scope is very clear: vibration API is DAPI's 
spec. If someone in Web Events wants to contribute to this spec, they 
need to join the DAPI WG.

My recommendation is for DAPI to put this API on its agenda (if so 
desired) and going forward, we set an expectation that DAPI's list 
(public-device-apis) will be used for all related discussions.

Frederick, Robin - agreed?
