Thanks for the update. Unfortunately, as per the recent minutes [1],
BPWG has decided that neither DCCI nor OMA DPE merit being included as
Best Practices. The lack of widespread adoption appears to be the
problem (unavoidable with new technologies). Perhaps BPWG might consider
some permanent page (wiki perhaps?) where they could keep a list of
interesting technologies to consider, which may in time become
candidates for future updates of the Best Practices.

Thank you Edward, Rotan. Nothing more to add except that the
implementations of 
DCCI were Firefox based (Nokia- MicroB on Maemo platform). Applications
properties through DCCI JS extensions. Implementations + appl
demonstrated LBS
based mashups (both FT and Nokia).
