> Another concern is how can an SVG document use intents?  If intents were just a DOM API, then an SVG document could just call the API.  Because you've coupled intents to HTML, the SVG document needs to go through some gymnastics to cook up an HTML element.  (The proper forum for this discussion is a standards body, not a bug thread.)

Do you mean invoking an intent? If so, see this patch: https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73051

This bug is about the intent tag, which in the proposal is purely for registration and discovery, not for invocation or delivery. (Those are handled by a DOM API call on navigator for invocation, and by a 'window.intent' object placed on DOMWindow for delivery.)

I'm not sure how an SVG document would call a DOM API. Can SVG scripts get access to the navigator object? I'm not familiar with all the constraints there. Certainly an HTML wrapper with inline SVG could use the intent tag as well as navigator.startActivity, but I don't know how HTML scripts interact with inline SVG scripts.

And definitely join the discussion on public-web-intents! You're right; that's where final decisions will get made on the feature.
