As self-appointed project lead of the chrome-bitcoin project, I would like to see a standardization of API across bitcoin wallet providers so that bitcoin users can easily use multiple wallets at once.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Server-assisted clients like blockchain.info rely on centralized servers to do their network verification for them. Although the server can't steal the client's bitcoins directly, it can easily execute double-spending-style attacks against the client.

The only way for a true API Standardization is to develop a OpenSource API Interface for them.

Then those wallet providers only have to hook and map their data source to the Standard API. This way it Wallet Providers can have their own API (if they feel its better) but still offer the standard alongside it.
