[Bug 17804] New: Handling parameter part of type attribute on the draft


           Summary: Handling parameter part of type attribute on the draft
           Product: Web Intents
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Intents specification
        AssignedTo: jhawkins@google.com

In latest editor's draft of Web Intents[1],
second example posts an intent with type="text/uri-list" and
third example declares it accepts type="text/uri-list;type=image/*" intent.

But, according to matching section[2],
text/uri-list;type=image/* doesn't match against text/uri-list,
so third example can't accept the intent from second example.

IMO, possible fix is
 - changing "text/uri-list" to "text/uri-list;type=image/" in second example,
 - or, changing the matching algorithm to handle parameter part of type
