After a few hours pf hacking I got second thoughts...My original idea
https://cyberphone.github.io/openkeystore/resources/docs/webnfc--web2device-bridge.pdf
making the client-side application interface *identical* for a "Wallet" called from a Web-page
or invoked from NFC/BLE (via a Web-page or through a more traditional POS-interface), seems
like a better use of my very limited development resources (=me).

That is, the navigator.nativeConnect() API
( https://github.com/cyberphone/web2native-bridge#api )
will be complemented by a navigator.tapConnect() API
where the proxy will be in the client (mobile) end.
