Even more interesting than the tech itself, I find more interesting the debate around the role of that new API. To some (prominent) JS people, this is mostly syntactic sugar and they wonder if it’s the time of W3C to go up the stack and make assumptions on the implementers behalf.

After all haven’t we had wrappers around XHR for a long time?

I have not made my mind but that’s a debate worth having IMO.
