What it means that a site "example.com" can call:
    DOMString isIntentHandlerRegistered(DOMString action, DOMString? mimeType, DOMString url);

isIntentHandlerRegistered(action, mimetype, "http://example.com/someintent")

but it can't call:
isIntentHandlerRegistered(action, mimetype, "http://example.net/someintent")
(well, it can, but it should not get a truthful answer.)
