we shouldn't even think about constraining HTTP. LDP should be using HTTP
(and not some profile of HTTP you have to know about when talking to an
LDP server), and any HTTP client should be able to talk to an LDP server
(and then has to understand the LDP vocabulary, but that's a different
layer). so +1 to not constraining/special-casing HTTP.
