- The technical scope and breadth of the Open Web Platform has grown. We all need to contribute to greater testing of this platform.
- Part of this growth is the increase in diversity of platforms implementing the OWP. That diversity makes testing harder - further driving the need for testing.
- While the OWP is a broad architecture, industry segments are defining "profiles". Getting a crisp focus on them makes the testing more complicated.
- The diversity of these platforms on the networks of Service Providers is a huge headache. Each Service Provider today is spending a great deal of money testing devices and implementations for their network.
- The needs of Consumer Electronics Vendors and the Entertainment industry for well tested implementations is significant. Whereas traditional web users understand that parts of the web are "not perfect", there is less tolerance for that in the CE space.
- Today, each vendor and each service provider spends a great deal in testing. We will optimize these costs for the industry if the testing is done in a central place. This will make the spec tighter; implementations tighter; and drive down total costs.
- W3C, the standardization organization for the OWP is the logical place to lead the testing.
- The industry should get together to fund this work at W3C. In the end this will:
- Reduce costs
- Increase interoperability
- Increase reliability
