@geekuillaume Though seemingly a small feature, this is a large task.  I like it, but it's not something we're planning to do for a long time.  To do this would require:
- Specifying the API and getting review.
- Building support from security & privacy teams.
- Implementing Android, ChromeOS, Windows, macOS support -- some of which will be difficult (e.g. ChromeOS has peripheral mode support intentionally limited due to single-mode only adapters out there).
- Tests
- Implementing from the platform abstraction up to the web bindings, cross process. 
- Web Platform Tests
- Shipping, with friction unless you've also gained support from other implementations.
