   Zoltan: We have some ReSpec issues. Maybe we should update the
   source, following the best practices in

     [12] https://github.com/w3c/web-nfc

   Daniel: we should work on defining InteractionOptions

   Zoltan: Currently at
   ... We need to remove the markdown line from the doc header in
   the spec. Then it renders fine.

     [14] https://www.w3.org/TR/wot-scripting-api/#idl-def-interactionoptions

   Daniel: the simplest is to extend with another optional field
   that provides an index to the preferred binding

   Zoltan: should it be a single value or an Array?
   ... what is the policy, just a hint or if that index doesn't
   work then should it fail?

   Daniel: the easiest would be to fail, since the script could
   choose another one, or remove the index hint

   Zoltan: formIndex as name?

   Daniel: sounds fine

   Zoltan: so we agreed how to extend, in the name and what does
   it mean

   Daniel: what about it being optional?

   Zoltan: InteractionOptions is a dictionary all are optional at
   the moment

   Daniel: ok, it should not be required

Error mapping

     [15] https://github.com/w3c/wot-scripting-api/issues/200

   Daniel: will prepare a proposal with Ege in the issue

   Zoltan: about writeProperty return values we have already
   agreed. Zoltan takes the task to create PR.


     [16] https://github.com/w3c/wot-scripting-api/issues/201

   Daniel: this is a breaking change in the API
   ... problem with scripts already running

   Zoltan: what I planned to do at the moment was to return "any"
   from reads, but explain in more detail how to deal with Forms,
   content types and DataSchema

   Daniel: in node-wot the "any" gets interpreted according to the
   media type.

   Zoltan: the thing is that there are already solutions in the
   Web Platform and would be nice to use them here as well
   ... maybe we can create a new issue about it


     [17] https://github.com/w3c/wot-scripting-api/issues/193

   Zoltan: having issue doing smart things instead of the scripts

   Daniel: it should be the same as reading the property

   Zoltan: when do we provide the value?

   Daniel: we raised that in the TD spec

   Zoltan: indeed we could handle it saying it's the same as a
   read done with the same bindings
   ... but there are issues
   ... not all devices will behave in the same way
