Re: [presentation-api] Remove getAvailability() url argument unless implemented

A special URL format is presently the only way we can integrate with 
DIAL
apps, for example. If the page is capable of communicating with a 
remote
DIAL app (for example www.netflix.com communicating with a Netflix 
DIAL
application on a TV) and the UA supports DIAL the page needs some way 
to
tell the UA to filter screens to only those with the requested DIAL 
app.

We could make this a first-class API feature, for example with 
'Discovery
protocol' and 'Discovery application name' fields, but so far people 
have
preferred to leave it as something to be encoded in the URL.

Thanks, Anton! Is there something sensible that could be implemented 
around
this? Putting a microsyntax in the URL or requiring the resource to be
fetched and analyzed both seem like slightly odd APIs for detecting 
support
for device capabilities.
