webtv-ISSUE-58: Improve Web Platform Consistency [HOME_NETWORK_TF]


Raised by: Mark Vickers

- Provide comprehensive test suites for HTML5 and related specifications to support fully portable web applications.

- We need to maintain a consistent web app platform across all browsers and devices.
- The cost of Web App support across browsers is still high. Each app company duplicates this cost, adding up to a huge expenditure.
- The number of browsers and devices continues to increase.
- Existing limited tests are focused on specification completion, not platform verification

- New tests, tests frameworks and client test support will be needed.

What needs to be standardized:
- The user agent may need to standardize additional APIs for test hooks.
- W3C should provide websites (webplatform.org?) and/or workshops to get requirements, priorities and bugs from the app community and library authors.
