The user agent is not supposed to know the address of a service that is 
not yet discovered, so how does this sentence "Each service registers 
itself with the browser using <intent> tags that specify the action the 
service is capable of handling." get to happen ?
How does the user agent get this intent tag ? It cannot be that the 
browser just reads a web page.
Thanks
JC
