Google has made a recent proposal to the DAP WG [1] called Powerbox:

  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-device-apis/2010Feb/att-0140/Overview.html

As Robin Berjon summarized on the chairs list:

[[ It proposes a model to plug services provided by arbitrary web  
parties into user agents in a discoverable, phishing-proof, open- 
ended, and safe way that takes into account users' privacy in exposing  
data that they have stored with one party to another.]]

Please let me know if you have any comment, especially from the  
standpoint of security and privacy.

regards, Frederick
