In section 4:

"User agents must not place a window.intent object in the scope of pages 
which do not have registration metadata declaring themselves as intent 
handlers."

If the Service page and the Registration page are separate, then the 
window.intent object is in the scope of a page that does not "have 
registration metadata declaring themselves as intent handlers". So I 
would think this sentence should be:

/"User agents must not place a window.intent object in the scope of 
pages which have not been registered as intent handlers."
/
Next sentence has the same problem:

"This means that any use of window.intent in pages which do not 
explicitly declare themselves as web intents handlers must not be 
overwritten by the User Agent."

I think it should be:

/"This means that any use of window.intent in pages which are not 
explicitly declared as web intents handlers must not be overwritten by 
the User Agent."
/
And last, I do not understand the meaning of the word "overwritten" in 
the above sentence.
I would have expected that part of the sentence to be "SHALL trigger an 
error" or the like.
Best regards
JC
