Ok, I took out "very".

I softened the introductory paragraph and added the following note to

<note><para>In the case of simple “GET” requests, implementors are encouraged
to support as many protocols as practical. In particular, pipeline authors may
attempt to use <tag>p:http-request</tag> to load documents with computed
URIs using the <literal>file:</literal> scheme.</para></note>

Does that help?
