Perhaps, I envisage the next version of the vibration API might include the GamePad vibration feature, though I still think that the current vibration API and the GamePad API are sufficiently meaningful to be implemented in WebKit.

My comment was actually meant to be somewhat facetious, and intended to reflect how arbitrary the new APIs are. Why support GamePad input, and not TV remote control input? Why only deal with vibration on a mobile device, and not other kinds of hardware feedback? I don't think they are good APIs.
