Agree. The consistency within W3C should be considered rather than that
with android intents. 

By the way, INPUT has a "multiple" attribute to specify whether multiple
upload is allowed or not. I'd like to see similar mechanism in
WebIntents to tell multiple transfer is allowed or not before the actual
data is selected. Greg and Paul's idea meet my requirements.
