We felt that allowing some custom URI schemes like cast://applicationId instead of the URL would be too specific to Cast protocol only.

How about the case when navigation occurs in the secondary page’s context? Do we need to prohibit that? Or do we just record the initial “requestShow” parameter URL for re-discovering existing sessions? I am thinking about a case where the secondary page navigates away from the initial URL by manipulating document.location.href, for example.
