Well, except that we thus require HTTP servers, or the information 
repository they sit on top of, to "know" that a given FPI represents a 
superset of other FPI's - it the FPI's were just registered bits in a 
64-bit space, that superset would simply be represented by all those bits 
being turned on.  Just more reasons why server-side generation to match 
client-side capabilities is a rathole....
