   space of URIs that have a path beginning with "/.well-known/".

   Well-known URIs are registered on the advice of a Designated Expert

and

"""
Appendix B.  Frequently Asked Questions

B.1.  Aren't well-known locations bad for the Web?

   They are, but for various reasons -- both technical and social --
   they are commonly used, and their use is increasing.  This memo
