If your prototype breaks down because the intents system doesn't work without extensions, then we have something to work from.

A use case I keep thinking about is:  
 1. I'm at Youtube.com, and I want to watch a video on my tv.  
 2. I tell youtube, "hey, sent this to my TV".  
 3. Video starts playing on my TV.   
 4. I turn the audio up/down on the youtube video (or I scrub the timeline). How does that work? Is that all still done over HTTP and the intent (i.e., the audio control)?  

I guess it's like the "intent" is ongoing while some activity is happening (watching the video on my tv). I don't know if the current proposal supports such a thing or if it's more "fire and forget".  

Anyway, just thinking out loud… guess we can pick this up in the new list.
