Let me know if there are issues with that; I'll commence with my action [1] to spec it out asap so that people will have time to review it before the meeting.

Here's the first draft of the Vibration API spec as promised:

  http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/vibration/

It's basically Mozilla's implementation, with the following changes and some clarifications:

* vibrate() is exposed on navigator.vibration instead of navigator
* two event handlers added: onvibrationstart and onvibrationend
* the exceptions raised by vibrate() are 'SyntaxError' and 'NotSupportedError'

Please look at the draft so that we can have a productive discussion at the TPAC next week.

Trackbot: this should close my DAP-ACTION-458.
