>> I can see your point. However, while they can be tied-in each other, the current specs are not related between them. 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.

I think in the perspectives of your concern, Geolocation API and
DeviceOrientation feature are also in the same position with Vibration
API and GamePad API.
Do you think Geolocation API and DeviceOrientation feature are not
good API in the Webkit as well? I hope you might be not ;)

At this moment, vibration API will go to Last Call soon in W3C and
Mozilla also support this as well.

best regards,

Therefore I hope reasonable issue could be
