Thanks for the discussion and for taking a clear stance. I know you were
going to stop replying, but so far you have only argued about the `metered`
part of the proposal. Any word on the proposed `sustainedSpeed` attribute?
One way a vendor could implement this API would be to always report `false`
for `metered` (despite the actual value potentially being another) and
still report connection speed data via `sustainedSpeed`.
