Hi,
The current widget URI spec does not work with XHR and hence can't be
used with popular JS libraries like JQuery Mobile. This makes the URI
scheme basically useless for a massive number of use cases.

To fix it, the widget URI spec needs to respond with HTTP responses
when a URI is dereferenced... similar to what blob:// does:
