To achieve interoperability between Client applications and Service applications Web Intents based APIs need to be specified. I assume that the combination of Action and Type enables a specified API to be used for interaction between Client and Service. So this has to be standardized.

It seems that this is an area where still a lot have to be done.  I have only seen one tangible proposal for a Web Intents based API submitted to W3C, that is the Gallery API, https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/dap/raw-file/16185b62381d/gallery/index.html. Robin has also posted thoughts on a Web Intents based Contacts API, http://www.w3.org/wiki/WebIntents/ContactsAPI.

I wonder if people on this list know of more tangible proposals for Web Intents based APIs than the two mentioned above? Which are your thoughts on driving the standardization on Web Intents based API further?

This is essential in order to succeed with Web Intents.

Best regards
