The original thought was that the url in the action SHOULD point to the
detailed documetation/specification for the usage of that action and data.

I think we all strongly agree that they should be specified and documented
much more comprehensively than they have now under "webintents.org/*"

My question is for all types that are under the namespace
http://webintents.org/ do you want the process to be managed by the W3C
under this group? or outside?
