You are mixing things here. Discovery can be dropped. What do you mean by
architectural approach? The API has been implemented successfully thus how
dare you say that there is a problem with the 'architectural approach' ?
Sorry it seems you should find other excuses perhaps the same you use for
discontinuing Contacts, SMS and the other. At this pace DAP will be the
W3C group with more discontinued work of W3C's history.

This has yet to be demonstrated.

Disent on our side
