kenchris has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/web-nfc:

== Decide whether multiple scanners are allowed ==
Currently as spec'ed each reader instance will receive the same data.

I am not a bit fan of this. iOS allows the same, but there is an order to it, like the first (or maybe it was the last) added reader receives the data first and if it doesn't handle it, it will be given to the next reader. That makes more sense to be, but this is the web so we really don't want other libraries etc to do any reading, so I think it makes more sense for the call to `scan` to actually cancel existing scans.
