Can anyone here point me to more info about the new CAIF protocol?

I read the docs and googled a bit but it is not clear to me how to use/test it.

Are there user space utilities available?
Is hardware essential? - I see a loopback implementation mentioned.
Do I need to buy a SonyEricsson Android phone for this to be useful?
(I might just do that if I can be sure to get one that will work)

I was under the impression that CAIF is used internally by Android phones. It's for communication between the two CPUs in the phone, not for communicating with an external device.
