As we had consensus to shelve the documents, I've added the suggested
warning statement to Pick Media Intent and Pick Contacts Intent.


I would like to note that I'll definitely rework the specs once we hammer
out the details of Web Intents/Activities.

It will be nice of you to update the DAP home page accordingly.
