Hello Webkit Dev!

I am working on a Touch Bar Web API that would allow websites to customize touch bar controls. There is currently no web standard for an interface like the touch bar, so my plan is to experiment with this feature and gather feedback that can inform a web standard. 

We have a fairly solid plan for how we want to go forward with this. We are planning to make use of the existent menu and menuitem tags to define the touch bar and touch bar items, respectively. The menu will be recognized as a touch bar menu if it has the type attribute “touch-bar”, and its contents would be rendered in the touch bar. 

I will be posting and landing patches under an experimental feature flag. The umbrella bug on Bugzilla can be found here: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=178736 <https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=178736> . 

Thank you,
