Instead of going with CEF, have you evaluated using just regular Chrome
Packaged Apps as the target platform?  It would mean a certain limit to
flexibility (you cannot extend the browser with arbitrary C++ code), but
you would leverage a tremendous amount of effort already put forth by
Chrome team if you went that route, and I suspect that much of the native
support you want is already implemented by the platform.  Let us know of
any concerns you have, and we can try to help address/resolve them.

Google already has a team working on cordova, but we absolutely do not have
the spare cycles to work on this full time right now.  That doesn't mean we
won't find the passion to help occasionally!
