I don't know if you do or not at this point (and I don't think we are at the point where we can say this). JS could give a script back an opaque object that represents the device/service - just like we don't give scripts the actual file when the user selects a file from the hard drive using <input type=file>. 

Seems pretty obvious that scripts should not be allowed to request exactly the device - they should only be able to request: "I need a heart rate monitor" or "I need a [gizmo/generic-thingo]". It's then the user that grants access to a gizmo claiming to have some protocol to talk over.
