There is a proposed scope.

It is our standard process to inform the ietf community of proposed
working groups through mail to ietf-announce; that has been done.
ALso, as is our common practice, we held a BOF on this issue.  The
scope restrictions at this time were discussed at the BOF.  It is my
opinion that there was broad support in the BOF for this scope
restriction.

You are correct that many people interested in HTTP may not currently
be part of the IETF community.  However I think that there are enough
people who are part of the IETF community who desire this scope
restriction that it has community support.
