These future "standards" could solve the problem to remote interaction between mediagoblin instances for example "When I do X task (such as favoriting, subscribing, or adding to a collection), I want to use Y service"

Is this still relevant now we (will) have federation via the Pump API?

It's unclear, but I think yes. The point of these tools is to express certain details such as "this user prefers to favorite using this link", etc. Webintents could allow a remote MediaGoblin instance to know what other MediaGoblin instance you wish to log in with, and that would be valuable.

It would be nice though if these standards were adjusted to better interlock with the activitystreams 2.0 work as that becomes available, but we'll see where that goes.

At any rate, the "user being able to express through their browser how they like to accomplish certain activities" seems like a good idea.
