> I'm not sure why you are insisting that a web browser ever needs to talk to locally installed software and hardware at all. This is low benefit and high risk.

This is the root of the problem here. What you think devs/users might need it for is irrelevant, there are proven use-cases of this which have been causing users to search out other browsers, some of them included in this thread. 

This seems to be direct neglect of the standard guided by a single person.
