I have some comments:

I think the idea is to decouple permissions from APIs, making that part of
a Security Model, so I don't understand why we are putting here that

Concerning wakeup, etc. I think that should not be part of the API itself
but of the App Manifest

I think we need to distinguish between registering the interest on
receiving push messages and receiving push messages themselves.

The current API does not address the possibility of having a queue of
pending messages.
