WebKit2 already has a similar feature, which is so-called *custom protocol*
enabled by Mac, Gtk and EFL ports. However the custom protocol feature
supports to register custom scheme
through API layer instead of JavaScript. The registerProtocolHandler() is
to support to register the custom scheme by means of JavaScript. I don't
know yet why we can't support to register it
from JavaScript.
