What problems would this solve?
===============================
MDN will be able to read, create, and update data without being fully integrated into the MDN codebase.  Other sites can use the data and make contributions.

Who would use this?
===================
MDN and partners

What would users see?
=====================
Developers would be able to read API docs and interact with the API

What would users do? What would happen as a result?
===================================================
MDN will use the API to create compatibility tables and alternate representations.  Third-party developers will use the API to create their own presentations or to contribute data.

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================
Draft API docs at http://web-platform-compat.readthedocs.org/en/latest/draft/intro.html .  Implementing the API will require many 3rd party open source libraries, and will include forking or improving those libraries.
