I think that this is a better approach.  Treat this like a transfer
coding.  That gives you a lot more flexibility and it doesn't mess
with the representation in ways that might be surprising.

If you want to interact with content codings, make it a content
coding.  At that point, it would be better to make this HTTP version
agnostic, in the same way that SDCH is.  But then you are just
defining a variation on SDCH.
