I'd agree, except SHOULDs are an interop non-starter.
Realistically, I have to start programming defensively, and half
the point of having a standard is to stop defensive programming and
take on some assumptions instead. Also, I don't see using non http:
scheme URIs to refer to things resolving much; I still need to know
we're referring to the same thing whatever scheme we use. The
problem is naming, not http abuse.
