Hi,

I updated ED of the Pick Contacts Intent:
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dap/raw-file/tip/contacts/Overview.html

Basically the following two things are incorporated in this update:
> - Dictionary definition
>   . Change array typed members to sequence<T>
>   . Change unnecessary nullable type  to normal type (as a member of
> dictionary is inherently optional by definition)
> - Intent action and type string
>   . action: http://webintents.org/pick to http://intents.w3.org/pick
>   . type: http://w3.org/type/contact to http://intents.w3.org/type/contact

I did not remove the *ContactIntentExtras* dictionary definition and its use
case. However, we do not have *extra* property in the Intent interface any
more. I would like to discuss whether we really need the search use case so
that we either drop the capability or talk with Web Intents colleagues how
to retain the capability.
