I hope you are not once again confusing your local perspective with the
global one.  I think that many people see the problem exactly as I have
stated it.  I think that many people have understood the many clear
examples I've put forth of why it's crass to overload http: identifiers
like this.  If *you* don't, it could mean that you aren't listening

locally-contextual proofs-of-concept, and the people who think HTTP
extends to "infinity and beyond".

When it's so hard to figure out who the true players are, and when
players in any case are usually egotistical and stubborn, I personally
don't regard appeals to the vested authority of players as a valid way
to make decisions.
