Do you have any comments on the new Web of Things Interest Group Charter [1] currently undergoing W3C AC Review, and the early draft charter for a Web of Things Working Group [2]?  The Interest Group could study ways to support versioning, and if there is sufficient consensus, this could be standardized in the Working Group. What suggestions do you have in respect to standardizing the device/service models for specific domains such as smart homes?

At this point no one from Apple is participating in the W3C web of things Interest Group. However, it would still be interesting to survey the Home Kit solutions as well as what other companies, big and small are working on.  I would very much like to chat with Google people about their work, including the Google Cloud Platform, as a lot of the value for the IoT will be upstream from the IoT devices themselves.

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.
