FYI - there is a group forming in IETF (WebPush) to work on the protocol definition of the web push spec. Its proposed charter (see below) specifically calls for collaboration with the push API work in WebApps. As weve done some work and coordination on push, and called for some work to be done at the protocol level, I though Id bring it to the attention of the TAG. 

Might make sense to see if we can ask Martin and others working on push from various angles to join us on the phone for a portion of our f2f

> Charter:
>   Many applications require continuous access to network communications
>   so that real-time events - such as incoming calls or messages - can
>   be conveyed (or "pushed") to the user in a timely fashion.
>   Uncoordinated use of the network from multiple applications can
>   contribute to unnecessary use of the network on devices.  For
>   instance, maintaining sessions can dominate costs over the long term,
>   since events are relatively rare.  This is particularly onerous for
>   battery-powered devices, on which network communication contributes a
>   significant portion of power drain.  Each independent session
>   independently incurs overheads, causing unnecessary resource usage on
>   devices.
>   Several modern computing platforms provide a push notification
>   service that consolidates application events, distributing those
>   events to applications as they arrive.  The single session avoids
>   duplicated overhead costs on devices.
>   This working group will develop a protocol that applications can use
>   to request the delivery of application data to a device using a
>   consolidated push notification service.  This work will include the
>   ability to push the same message to multiple devices.  The work may
>   include an exemplar protocol for devices registering with push
>   services.
>   This work will be done in collaboration with the W3C Webapps Working
>   Group, who are developing a Web Push API for use in web applications
>   (see <http://www.w3.org/TR/push-api/>).
> Milestones:
>  2015-05 Send web push protocol draft to the IESG as Proposed Standard
