whether or not there are reserved paths for HTTP, I don't think
it is a topic for the HTTP working group or an aspect of the
HTTP protocol, any more than the RFC on 'commonly used email
addresses' (postmaster@blah, info@blah, etc.) is an aspect of
SMTP or the RFC on 'frequently used host names' (news.domain,
www.domain, etc.) is an aspect of the DNS protocol.

So: out of scope. Take it elsewhere. Write an Internet Draft
and try to go for 'informational RFC' outside of this group.
