Hello Florian, Thanks for pointing out the WebVR spec draft.
The WebVR draft dated April 1st contains a Gamepad interface expansion (§2.11), however it only extends it by a DisplayId. It should also add a VRPose for tracked controllers. I think adding a VRPose could have benefits for non-VR applications as well (think about the Nintendo Wii controllers!), however. So my suggestion to add it to the Gamepad API still stands.
