That's how I'd have done it, seems like proper architecture congruent
with the pertinent standards.  But, I'm just a freelancer, so I'm kinda
required to work within the standards, not big enough to dictate Web
architecture to everyone else by fiat even when it makes no sense (we
now have 'n and counting' URI schemes which are aliases of http: when
the standard says schemes map to protocols).
