If I recall presenting part or all of the page's own content on a 
secondary screen was discussed but out of scope for what the 
Presentation API was intended.  There's a few differences we'd have to
- Presentation API applies to two or more separate documents, while 
Fullscreen API applies to an element within one document
- Fullscreen API is (nearly) almost always available, while 
Presentation API is only interesting when there secondary screens 
available.  An important feature of the Presentation API is enabling 
pages to detect this case and conditionally offer presentation.
- We specifically don't allow the API to target specific screens 
(along the lines of the proposal put forth).

That being said, a user requesting a fullscreen is a signal that the 
element in question is a good candidate for presentation on a 
secondary display, especially for `<video>`.  @duanyao I encourage you
 to review the proposal in Issue #13 and comment.
