I disagree, there is no reason that I can see why you should invent a
new scheme for this when plain old HTTP will do.

This doesn't make much sense. File descriptors are never refered to
using the "std" prefix like STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR. "POSIX" would make
more sense in this context, and hence why not just publish an RDF
profile that covers all POSIXy resources and use the HTTP URIs
associated with that profile?
