I think I understand. And I still think that's a really bad idea,
since there are so many other kinds of facilities that might plausibly
want to resolve that URL to get something, and I don't think it's
useful to create an environment where different types of things are
competing for the use of that resource.
In an ideal world, one might imagine that content-negotiation could
be helpful here - i.e. do a get on the URI and say that you only
accept text/xml-sox or some such... but I'm not convinced that media-types
are up to handling this job. -Tim
