I notice that the ContactIntentExtras dictionary contains a fields item
which is DOMString[]. Meanwhile, the getExtra() method of Intent is spec'd
to return a DOMString. I suppose it would be necessary to modify the
getExtra() method to work with the dictionary definition (and to be more
flexible in general)? Say, returning any instead of DOMString?
