RE: Regarding app notification and wake up

Yes, or more specifically (if this matters) invoke a Webapp, which at some level relates to a "page" as its root.

This is different from the earlier discussion on extending SSE to connectionless event sources, as there's no assumption the Webapp is running in this case. If the Webapp *is* running, it's within the scope of what we have discussed earlier as SSE extensions (and not technically a "wakeup").

So basically you're saying you want to remotely cause a Web browser to 
load a Web page?
