I'm happy to help as I can, but as there are multiple teams at Google
working on various IoT projects and I can't speak for them. I will suggest,
however, that one of the key groups contact you. Is someone from Apple
already on this list and participating?

As to standardizing on the device/service model, it usually helps to do a
quick survey of what existing models are already out there. In addition to
HomeKit, can anyone else suggest any other projects? It seems reasonable to
start with these existing models, find a resonable subset for "Version 1"
and then allow the differences to be expressed using the 'optional'
mechanism. Subsequent standards work would then try to move the optional
pieces into the required.
