Is there any reason eyedropper functionality couldn't be added to the standard <input type=color> widget? Not certain why a new API is needed.
@heycam: One of [the goals of the API](https://github.com/WICG/eyedropper-api#goals) is this one:
> 2. Allow the developer to enable the eyedropper through script (subject to user activation).
A good example that leverages this goal is this integration in Slides: https://twitter.com/hakimel/status/1433035547933564937 (video)
As they already have a color selection mechanism, that doesn't use input[type="color"], integration the EyeDropper was was really easy.
