Okay, I'll take a look at this as it can help us making things easier for
such tools. However, among our goals, we come with the idea of providing
some API to easily reach our data.

Okay, I'll take a look at it because we should have some come issues
therefor, we could use it if it fits our own requirement.

As Jean-Yves point it out on the MDN mailing-list, we have l10n issues to
address but I guess WPF will have such issues at some point as well.

Anyway, we are currently on the early stage of gathering our own functional
requirements in order to be sure we will not forget anything before moving
to technical requirements.

I'll keep you inform when we will reach a more concrete point. Feel free to
follow and contribute to our discussion on the dev-mdn and dev-mdc mailing
list in the meantime (and I'm gonna be subscribing to the webplatform-tests
ML).

Best,
