Mac OSX 10.8 (Mountain Lion), along with most mobile operating systems, has a system-wide sharing functionality. Could the Web Intents API add a "SHOULD" or "MAY" clause for adding web intents to the system-wide "share sheet" or similar functionality, rather than just on the web? It fits with a few other parts of the HTML5 spec that move towards OS integration (e.g. notifications, which would fit well with Android/iOS/OSX10.8's built-in notification centers).
