Sorry for my late reply.

I think the most important debatable point is the target browser.
We've been considering the browser for the signage, but not limited to.

However, the security model will be different from that we think about
if the target is even extended to include the general browser.
And, the APIs might be not realized as we want.
# The service of the digital signage does not allow the confirmation of user (audience).

So, I think the target browser could be extend to other than the signage but limited to the machine use.
In such case, I want to know whether the W3C standardization allows the target browser except uses by human being.
If possible, we could consider the APIs for the browser that is not supposed to be used by human.
Does anyone know the policy?

The DAS-WG has pointed out that their target is the default browser (same as the general browser?).

We are focusing on controlling of power on/off of the signage terminals and displays, and most of those terminals may not have batteries. Of course, it will be great to cooperate with DAS-WG. As pointed out from DAS-WG, it is needed to make our own mature draft for being reviewed by the experts of DAS-WG.
