Separate from the issue of what precisely the element should look like, I
wonder if you could expand on the precise use case for the element. In
particular, I'm interested in whether this use case might also apply to
some of the register*Handler() methods we have now.
Ideally, it would be good to have the current protocol and content type
handlers and the Web Intent stuff all use a coherent and consistent API.
