I think the main reasons for starting this work are:

1. to define a base set of protocols that Presentation API 
implementers can refer to to implement the spec;
2. to improve interoperability between implementations, i.e. the 
possibility to associate a presentation controller with a presentation
 receiver even if they have not been implemented by the same user 
agent.

While I would love to see all possibilities covered, I would initially
 restrict the scope to developing the necessary glue around 
technologies that participants can agree on and plan to implement 
right away. For instance, mDNS appears in all proposals/implementation
 plans, so it seems like a good starting point for discovery. BLE 
could perhaps be addressed later on.

The charter should leave the door open for the CG to write 
requirements for additional technologies in any case (the proposed 
draft charter allows that), even though related technical 
specifications remain out of scope.

It should be relatively easy to update the CG charter to extend the 
scope once participants agree that some other technology needs to be 
covered. Well, at least it should be easier than doing the same thing 
in a Working Group.
