Thank you very much. It is helpful for me.
I have looked through the list of intents which aggregates registry of android intents protocols. 
For web intents, I am just wondering if WebRTC is a common use case.
WebRTC is also a W3C spec (http://dev.w3.org/2011/webrtc/editor/webrtc.html) and in processing.
When there is a valid ID (e.g. telephone number, email) in a client page, user can click it to pick a WebRTC service page, then call remote peer. The function is similar to "android.intent.action.CALL", but the difference is that client page and service page both in the web browser.
Is it necessary to standardize this use case?

For Android intents, there is e.g. openintents.org. We have added a
column for Web Intents as well.

The most common use cases are supposed to be standardized (see media
gallery spec)
