FYI. This document is using HTTPS here:

Anyone care to review? After a quick scan, it appears to be profiling HTTP a bit, and I note it doesn't seem define a media type for its payload.

> Abstract
>   Portions of the radio spectrum that are allocated to licensees are
>   available for non-interfering use.  This available spectrum is called
>   "White Space."  Allowing secondary users access to available spectrum
>   "unlocks" existing spectrum to maximize its utilization and to
>   provide opportunities for innovation, resulting in greater overall
>   spectrum utilization.
>   One approach to managing spectrum sharing uses databases to report
>   spectrum availability to devices.  To achieve interoperability among
>   multiple devices and databases, a standardized protocol must be
>   defined and implemented.  This document defines such a protocol, the
>   "Protocol to Access White Space (PAWS) Databases".
