It has been my experience that browser vendors, more often than not, require at least a (proposed) standard before they will consider implementing a requested feature.

While I personally find the inordinate level of effort and debate that goes into off-line first functionality frustrating, I would certainly not seek to stifle debate or censor someone else from having their say.

Background geolocation can work via service workers for fleet-management even in the complete absence of an instantiated UA and definitely requires the WWW to function but then Iím all for Web functionality and network connectivity and IoT and so on.
