Sigh, OK, so this has been a word-game: "hardcoded intermediaries" are what
we all think of as HTTP-aware firewalls/proxies/caches/etc., because you
think of the Web as a single "application."  You can understand how this
confuses those of us who think of the Web as infrastructure upon which
millions of applications are built!
