    I can't see how you will convince google to support a new element that will impact browser performance and compete with one of their commercial products. Widgets can be used by sites that want them.

    @prushforth @fredesch ...and yet, I'm one of those people who will argue that one can get perf, accesibility, community and standards without putting more code in web browsers.

    You can't solve the problems I mentioned in my presentation without a native element or two.

    @thehabes
    Allowing a switch between different coordinate reference systems (I think this is what I mean to say, but my vocabulary in this field isn't perfect)
    Also, consistent vocabulary would be nice. The more groups I interact with, the more I realize people have different meanings of goecode, geolocate, georectify, georeference, co-locate, etc.

    it feels like plugging here but our rendering team is amazing, and we are even making the new Vulcan stuff.. I feel like we could help with that

    @ahocevar re: WebGL accessibility towards web devs, I blame early implementors for being lazy on just porting the OpenGL2 ES API instead of wrapping it in actual object-oriented abstractions
    Andreas Hocevar
    @ahocevar
    Very good point @IvanSanchez_gitlab.

    (replace "lazy" with "pressured by management" or "under haste because of release dates" or whatver underlying reason, but my point of view as an outsider remains the same)

    I have a fun probably very off topic question. Does the proposed HTTP2 affect how HTML might work now, and does its existence mean that something is waiting for an extended HTML?
    Iván Sánchez Ortega
    @IvanSanchez_gitlab
    AFAIK HTTP2 only affects TCP connections, it shouldn't affect HTML.
    Bryan Haberberger
    @thehabes
    I read a book on it, but have not implemented it in any way yet. I have a fairly naïve understanding of it.

    @IvanSanchez_gitlab
    As fas as maps go, it would alleviate the reasons for the hacks we use to load more tiles in parallel
    Bryan Haberberger
    @thehabes
    Wow not expecting answers. Color me surprised.
    Lol did not know HTTP3 existed yet
    Cool, thanks for the explanation

    HTTP is a Transport Protocol. It shouldn't really care about the stuff that's going over it, that's a higher level of the OSI model.

    Answering @tomkralidis , I see a dystopian future where only three web mapping platforms work well natively in three web browsers.
    Bryan Haberberger
    @thehabes
    Being fully on the developer side, I hate that I had to learn about different coordinate reference systems and why my coordinates don't work the same everywhere. This makes Features way more abstract than they should be. Even when lat/lon order doesn't matter, like [12,12]. That should always put me in Africa.

    What Daniel's talking about is a flavour of the Jevons Paradox - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jevons_paradox - "When technological progress or government policy increases the efficiency with which a resource is used the rate of consumption of that resource rises due to increasing demand"
    Fred Esch
    @fredesch
    I don't hear anyone talking about how you relay the semantics of a map to a screen reader. I did miss the first hour on Wednesday...
    If you get a native element. you must also define the semantics of the element and the accessibly APIs
    Doug Schepers
    @shepazu
    Making controls a commonly available API helps everyone, especially accessibility; you can make them flexible through the API
    Peter Rushforth
    @prushforth
    @fredesch I think the <feature> element would be where I would say to start?

    Are maps considered for "offline" functionality, like how it can be with downloaded local Google Map data

    Question: does the panel think that maps will only take off when AR does?
    Peter Rushforth
    @prushforth
    Maps are already big!
    Iván Sánchez Ortega
    @IvanSanchez_gitlab
    Offline/cached stuff is a political/economical problem, not a technical one. As I said yesterday, preventing users from caching means more billable HTTP requests, which means more cash.
    Bryan Haberberger
    @thehabes
    Yeah like service workers I suppose. I guess since <map> would be HTML that ties right in. +1
    I think maps have taken off already
    Iván Sánchez Ortega
    @IvanSanchez_gitlab
    (I feel like I'm repeating stuff that I already wrote about, but I made a radical proposal for P2P IPFS-like caches at https://ivan.sanchezortega.es:444/politics/2020/09/01/mapml-essay-part5-the-gold-the-moor-the-sausage-machine.html )

    @briankardell_twitter
    I feel like there are two very different aspects to the a11y questions... part of that is about interaction/interactive elements.. The answer to that is it should use the existing platform or fill in what is missing. If it is about making the rendering accessible, are the existing forms not all there too?

    You need two implementations to be added to HTML.

    @AmeliaBR
    My analogy: YouTube (and its Google owners) didn't block <video>, it adopted it. IMO, The commercial asset is the map content (and the paid services to search/use it), not the map viewer.
    Fred Esch
    @fredesch
    Won't Joanmarie require you have semantics and accessibility APIs defined for a new element?
    Bryan Haberberger
    @thehabes
    Yes. It often has to be explained that an Image of a Map is not a map, especially to the Web. It is an image.
    Satoru Takagi
    @satakagi
    @AmeliaBR
    The video element is similar to the each video shown in youtube, but the map being discussed here seems to be similar to a service like youtube.
