Thanks Marc. I believe it is ideal if speech services such as yours also
provides a Javascript library encapsulating your protocol specifics. This
will let third party web sites just point to your Javascript code from their
app and start talking to your speech service.

A generalization of this is to provide a set of "client libraries" in
various languages, not just Javascript. That will enable native applications
on various platforms to use speech services as well. For e.g. see the Google
Data Protocol client

I suggest that speech services can follow this model. Once our XG produces a
solid web speech API for use through the browser and we see the types of
apps making use of this, either this group or a related group at IETF can
define a common protocol if required.
