I think the short answer to "how to add new protocols to HTTP"
is that "there isn't any way right now" and that if anyone
has a serious proposal for how to do so and under what circumstances
it would be a reasonable thing to do, they should write it up.

Otherwise, we can talk about this for a long time in HTTP-WG
without making a lot of progress.

Thanks,

Larry
