I am now thinking about the current behaviour of defaultRequest. In 
current spec the controlling page get notified (using 
`onconnectionavailable`) only if the user selects a display in the 
dialog. Do we need to inform the page that the selection dialog is 
open? in this case we need to change the spec as following:

```
navigator.presentation.defaultRequest = new 
PresentationRequest(presUrls);
navigator.presentation.defaultRequest.onstart = function(evt) {
    // here the page knows that a dialog is open
    evt.promise.then(setConnection).catch(...)
};
```

in this case we don't need to constrict a new algorithm for default 
request. What do you think?
