This API looks great!

This API is currently implemented in Firefox OS so we have
implementation experience showing that it works and allows building
useful telephony applications. One thing that we'd like to add is the
ability to receive incoming calls in the form of a system message so
that the telephony application doesn't need to be running, but is
started as soon as there is an incoming call. However in order for
that to be possible to specify, we need define system messages first,
probably as part of the runtime specification.

I'd also like to add that we have a draft of extensions to this API
which would allow multipart calls. However we haven't implemented
these yet, so we don't have the same level implementation experience.
But for anyone that wants to have a look the draft is available here:
