Purpose of android.intent.category.DEFAULT

This category is mainly used for implicit intents. If your activity wishes to be started by an implicit intent it should include this category in its filter.

I think the term "default" should be understood as "default candidate". If the action on a piece of data resolves to multiple activities, then Android will present all candidates to the user and the user can select his preferred default.
