Re: "only the generic utilities that need to look at arbitrary 
devices, and those are likely served better by native apps anyway, so 
they're not constrained by the web's permission restrictions":

Generic utilities may be great or better on web tech vs native. E.g. I
 needed that rename tool and was able to author it quickly using the 
web stack. The web permission model didn't get in the way. I wouldn't 
have bothered starting with writing a native application. I could 
easily see folks writing quick custom apps to help e.g. provision a 
large number of devices using certain rules or constraints.
