I didn't know about RFC 6920, but yes, the point is to identify each
object by their hash, both for anonimity and uniqueness. Regarding to
magnet links, some people proposed it to me several times, but don't
know how a browser would manage various webapps (a browser based P2P
like mine, a bittorrent client on the cloud, a DirectConnect client
installed on its machine...) registering for the magnet scheme...

Any way, thanks for remind us about them :-)
