I think your sequence was wrong. We haven't actually talked about the
Intent tag in this TF, and acting as if the TF supports it is misleading to
the group involved in the HTML discussion.

W3 WG/TF's aren't created to rubber stamp a proposal that hasn't even been

I'm not saying that the tag or its design are wrong (I suspect and hope
that they're good/right), just that you should walk the TF through to reach
