This can be re-worded and the word 'primarily' removed.

Communications with Zot/6 take place using JSON over https.

There's been a bit of debate over the https requirement as it could 
cause conflict with using zot over Tor. It might be a good time to 
resolve that once and for all. This would mostly have an impact on the 
section about data encryption. Perhaps this would require a negotiated 
crypto algorithm if running over unsecured http.
