The thing is, this use case does have everything to do with the HTTP 
protocol and HTTP GET and/or POST. The proposal still sends the data 
over HTTP, not over some new protocol they've invented. On the server 
side there'd be no difference between the feed scheme and the http 
scheme, and very little on the client. Therefore the HTTP 
architecture applies. The mailto example is not relevant or analogous 
here because mailto uses completely different protocols with their 
own architecture.
