I am leaning to the idea we would not shelve them too fast. Web Intents and
Web Activities folks have updated the position that they need more time to
collect implementation feedback. Also, in the last Sys Apps WG F2F, I
mentioned the differences between Pick Contacts Intent and Contacts Manager
API which indeed would cover complementary use cases as a whole. Hence,
what is actually needed for people being confused is clarifying the use
cases and capabilities the two different specs are providing rather than
shelving them as long as Web Intents/Activities spec is in progress.

Thanks,
Jungkee
