Thanks Satish,

I think that is a good model in the sense that the protocol for the 
communication between the web app and the speech service would not have 
to be specified, giving us time to learn from experience as Bjorn stated.

For our aim of having interoperable speech service implementations in 
the browser, this might be an interesting model *if* we could define the 
common interface that each of these vendor-specific libraries would have 
to implement... (that's Java thinking, not sure is things such as 
Interfaces, Factories etc. exist in JavaScript).

Best,
Marc
