jhaenchen has just created a new issue for https://github.com/WebBluetoothCG/web-bluetooth:

== Cannot interact with non-GUI HID interface ==
Is there any new info about how I should use HID devices over Bluetooth? It seems oh so very reasonable to use the HID protocol to do a million different things, many of which have nothing to do with audio streams or keyboard inputs.

chrome.hid won't allow you to interact with HID pages associated with keyboard or mouse input, but they will allow everything else. Can we allow a similar filtering system for web bluetooth?

Totally blacklisting the HID protocol seems like overkill to me. A softphone is an easy example of where this functionality would be useful.
