Hello Clarke,


Concerning the submission.


1.  My understanding is that HNTF deals with requirements rather than specific implementations. ISSUE-23 deals with required support of UPnP/DLNA devices. If there is some requirement to support alternate Home-Network discovery mechanisms (such as Bonjour) I would suggest submitting a separate issue. 

2.  The proposed interfaces do not adequately deal with security and privacy on the home network. 

Even a valid Java applet can violate end-user privacy constraints. These issues must be dealt with within the User-Agent rather than in downloaded applet code. The proposed interfaces appear to violate cross-domain scripting constraints.

3.  I'm not sure there is a W3C requirement for User-Agents to provide Java (JVM) support.

> CableLabs has revised and simplified its home networking API proposal.

> There are now two routines. One to initiate the discovery process (for

> any number of protocols) and one for sending a message with an

> associated callback function. Both routines use JSON for an extremely

> flexible way to pass parameters. Please review the proposal and provide
