A "custom protocol" is, using David's terms, an owner-dependent protocol,
whereas a "standard protocol" is an owner-independent protocol.  "Owner" is
the owner of the aliasing domain.  A protocol is owner-dependent if the
server is guaranteed to belong to the owner (e.g. a bank or an ISP).

I don't know exactly what you mean by "custom protocol", but WSS is
*exactly* the kind of protocol that [1] was talking about.  The
introduction uses "XyzConsortium" as an example, but you can think "WWW
Corporation" instead.
