this is something that perhaps the charter should define clearly 
removing all the ambiguities:
what are the "common existing deployments" the wg will take in 
The current charter tries to clearly list what will be considered.

I don't have a strong opinion on this,
but I don't think we should consider "all the other common uses of HTTP" 
for 2.0, they are to many that are common to different degrees
