Re: Web Share API

Wow, it really is very similar. It's kind of encouraging to see that we
ended up on more or less the same architecture with regard to the service
worker approach to doing the third party apps.

I think it makes a ton of sense to try to bring these specs as close
together as we can, and establish a pattern / "best practice" for
functionality like this.

The Web Share API does look very useful and relevant, and if I were to
implement it, it would be neat if I could reuse bits of the Web Payments
implementation for handling app registration and mediation.
