I don't think we need to talk about HTTPbis, as interesting as it may
be. To the extent we do, it will naturally come up in the session
that's scheduled for HTTP semantics.

As far as I can tell, every HTTPbis change that relates to the TAG's
web architecture hot buttons is in the direction of moving closer to
AWWW.

Those who read what Noah quoted below should be aware that I followed
up this message a statement that I had initially misread the draft and
in fact I do *not* think that "the section on the http: scheme is
inconsistent on what the URI is supposed to identify."
