NFC (daemon, manager, etc). Doesn't gracefully handle completely unformatted tags currently, and relies on the app to know what to do given no feedback besides vibrating. Why there's no record: When nfcd sends technology discovered with no records, it indicates that the NDEF start bit "MB" is missing, meaning, it either isn't NDEF, or is unformatted. This is different from "Empty", which is an NDEF Record type. This is primarily a writeNDEF use case: empty, unformatted tags. There is nothing to read on the tag. This also requires foreground dispatch (Bug 937430) to trigger a new NDEF message write.
