It is worth pointing out that saving bytes is one goal; saving code  
complexity is another significant goal.  Tight binary coding with few  
options is much easier to parse than a lenient text-based protocol on  
an 8-bit processor with 48 KiB of flash.

That said, whether the result of such an effort still is HTTP is the  
interesting question.
