Yeah, I had read the JavaScript API proposal and failed to apprehend the  
use cases.

Say you have a HTTP file storage service. You could POST new files to /,  
where from you could also GET an index of uploaded files. You could then  
PUT modifications to the URI of any previously uploaded file.

This means the user can GET a file, edit it (locally or by piping it  
through a third host) and PUT it back. The file storage service has only  
to inform the User Agent as to what methods are supported for each  
resource (or class of resources, by using URI templates).

My failure to understand what problems Web Intents are to solve, and how,  
seem more fundamental than a simple misreading of a document. I must be  
missing something so basic nobody has considered it worth stating  
explicitly.
