Since it isn't in WebApps's deliverables, this could require some process mongering which I think we can all agree is an annoying waste of time. As it happens however, DAP already has Intents in its charter, so getting to work right now rather than walking the bureaucratic path is a simple matter of doing the work there.

That presupposes that Microsoft would have anything to say even in this WG. Obviously, I can't speak for Microsoft (and I won't), but just because someone is part of the WG doesn't mean that they will say anything … or worst, they will just exclude patents willy-nilly like Apple did with Widgets. That's a much crappier situation, so careful for what you wish for :)
