Hi all,

I found that some media related intents actions can handle not only
binary content but also url list. For example,
http://webintents.org/share, http://webintents.org/pick assume the
text/url type.

Although I believe this is also useful in case of a single big content (e.g.
movie), I concern that the "text/url" type seems not enough
to determine the capability/requirement of services. How can the intent
registration tag say "I can provide a url for movie, but for contact
info"? How to pick a movie by url?
My question is : 
1. Can a URL be used for such porpose in web intents?
2. Does it make sense to add some mechanism to expose more detail
info in "text/url" case?

A URL may reveal its origin, but this is another issue...
