I'm not sure if the proposal was explicit enough, but for the RPH-esque
functionality in Web Intents, we activate WI in the same circumstances RPH
is activated, which is when links are activated in a page.  Can you
elucidate how the scenarios you listed could be handled?  Note these
scenarios are above and beyond RPH, but we're not trying to make the API
