Thanks for preparing this draft. 
I'd like to advocate including the EMMAText and EMMAXML attributes in
SpeechRecognitionResult. One argument is that at least some existing
consumers of speech recognition results (for example, dialog managers and
log analysis tools) currently expect EMMA as input. It would be very
desirable not to have to modify them to process multiple different
recognizer result formats. A web developer who's new to speech recognition
can ignore the EMMA if they want, because if all they want is tokens,
confidence, or semantics, those are available from the
SpeechRecognitionAlternative objects.
