Bluetooth Low Energy support

I would like to have Bluetooth beacon support in (at least) Firefox for Android. In the past week I have been hacking on beacons and I believe they're gonna be key to connecting the physical world with mobile phones.

Any discussion in W3C around this yet?

I guess the first iteration of the API could look something like:

interface BeaconScanner : EventTarget {
void startScanning();
void stopScanning();

attribute EventHandler onbeaconfound;

interface Beacon {
readonly attribute DOMString uuid;
readonly attribute long major;
readonly attribtue long minor;
readonly attribute short rssi;

Support is there for Android 4.3+ and for OS/X (at least from what I can test).

Web Bluetooth <> community group
specification <> is
currently focused on GATT, but is clearly relevant. A charter
is under 30 day vote now, it has strong support.
