Well, it might not limit more comprehensive approaches,
per se, but it introduces needless redundancy since
one ends up with a specific solution and a more general
solution accomplishing the same thing, and if resources
are scarce, it might be better to work on a single 
general solution to many problems rather than many
individual but distinct solutions to those problems.

Especially if we are talking about architecture rather
than applications built atop that architecture.

I have done so.

   Fair enough.

   If you still think I'm talking about something else, then
   I formally propose a new TAG issue -- addressing which formal
   and official extensions to HTTP are required to achieve a seamless
   and efficient interface between the Web and the Semantic Web.

And as I point out, I believe this broader issue
fully subsumes the issues brought up by TimBL at
the start of this thread.
