Dear all,

In the Home Network TF of Web and TV IG, we discussed discovery of 
services, including the discovery of those services offered through 
existing protocols such as UPnP.
I heard at the TPAC that web intents are the way to satisfy the HNTF 
requirements on discovery.
 From reading the emails on this list, I do not see how it is possible 
to wrap UPnP services as intents.
It seems a mediator or proxy would be needed, receiving the initial 
broadcast of the UPnP service announcing itself, translating that to an 
intent registration and sending it to the intents broker.
If so, then no, web intents do not satisfy the HNTF requirements on 
discovery, or at least, there is a significant missing part.
Best regards
