Have you considered using a meta or a rel extension point for HTML?  Those are much lighter weight than a new HTML element.

In a similar vein, http://webintents.org/ makes it look like you mean for <intent> to be a self-closing tag, which has implications for the HTML parsing algorithm and for interoperability with user agents that don't implement intents.

In any case, if we want to go the HTML element route, we should communicate with the HTML standards community.  I don't think it's even possible to define HTML elements outside of the HTML spec.  By contrast, defining a meta or a rel extension doesn't require interacting with the HTML working group.
