The F2F meeting notes about the issue 19 that led to the current spec:

The argument against having an array property was that the prototype 
can be changed by the web developers. It doesn't apply to Sequence 
though afaik.
The other argument against the proposal was about supporting a simple 
use case of one connection - then the page wouldn't need an event 
handler or care about a sequence of the connections. This is why we 
left getSession() method.

@sicking I think the timing doesn't really matter in the Mounir's 
example - if the connection is already initialized, it could be 
populated by the time the page accesses the sequence but if it's not, 
then the page will receive an event.

I think the question now is about the easiness to support the simple 
use case - one presentation, one connection.

We also need to keep in mind a case when the page wants to designate 
itself as a presentation, that's what ```Promise<> ready``` property 
could be used for. But as long as it's a backward compatible change, 
we could add it later. See issue #32
