JCD: That is quite a sweeping argument. It sounds like it is OK to be 
blind to what happens inside the UA :o)
I think I gave the argument that the way the spec is written encourages 
browser lock-in, if only by obfuscation.
I am very uneasy with the browser having sole control over intents and 
how they are processed.
I would rather have the intents processed in another (more open) layer 
than the browser
Of course it make the spec a bit more complex to describe a separable 
process, but the extra freedom is worth the extra complexity.
