The problem here is security. Once you open things up, you have to 
deal with the issue of disclosure of resources. Intermediaries 
complicate the problem too (already do in the web. Who knows whose 
spoofing whom). Peer-to-peer HTTP is fine for asycnronous work (I POST 
a request, you POST a response), but there are issues in the apparent 
simplicity. Those kinks need to get ironed out before this really 
takes off.
