No, I mean register an intent.

An SVG document is a full-fledged part of the web platform.  It can use all the same DOM APIs an HTML document can use.

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

Unfortunately, I don't have time to join ever standards mailing list that interests me.  I'm happy to abide by the decisions of the working group, but it doesn't seem like the working group has made a decision in this regard.  If that's an incorrect understanding, please point me toward the record of such a decision.

It concerns me that the folks designing this API don't understand the relationship between HTML and SVG documents.  That makes me worry that they'll make suboptimal design decisions because they don't understand how the web platform works.

As I wrote above, I'm not super excited about this patch, but I'm not going to stand in the way if another reviewer thinks we should accept it.
