I'm not sure to catch on to what you mean... but, yes: CoAP nodes (at least the
most constrained) won't be generally available in the wild.

We expect to find them behind these HTTP-CoAP proxies that act as application
layer gateways, bridging the www infrastructure on one side, and a constrained
intranet on the other).

A web application could registerProtocolHandler() to configure the needed
HTTP-CoAP gateway to use, and then link to coap://device/resource as if the
browser could speak natively with that constrained node.
