But config.xml has nothing to do with an HTML5 application, it's a cordova specific thing
(hybrid app config).

It's nice to have it align with the w3c spec for widgets but we're talking about 2 different
- Hybrid application configuration (which may have enable platform specific features)
- HTML5 application configuration (~ w3c widget spec which I'm personally not a fan)
The scope of the HTML5 app configuration IMHO is outside of cordova and certainly up for debate.
