Fwd: Formalizing our permissions model using the Permissions API

It was suggested to me that since this document deals with some IP
address access issues, it should also have attention called to it on the
WebRTC list.

Here you are...

I tried to think a bit about how I would formalize the permissions model
we have designed for WebRTC in terms of the permissions API's
permissions model.

After a while, it seemed to make sense, and I'd like to share it to see
if it makes sense to others.

The Google doc is here:


Anyone with the link should be able to comment, if you want to comment

The content is attached as PDF, which may be more accessible to some
(and is certainly more archivable).

Questions to ask:

- Is this something worth doing?
- If yes: Is this something that should be part of our core docs, a
separate doc, part of the permissions doc, or in some "other" category?
- Where did I go wrong?

Comments welcome!
