This sounds to me as though the user would have to download a browser  
plugin.  I would hope this would be as transparent as possible to the  
user. Maybe I'm misunderstanding the discovery mechanisms you're  
talking about.  Could you expand on this?

I do think that a URI prefix is a neat idea.  This could eliminate the  
need for a new attribute.  Is it as backwards-compatible?
