AW: DAV:principal-URL

But RFC 3744 says

"However, servers implementing this specification MUST expose principal
resources at an http(s) URL"

Doesn't this mean, that the D:href for the principal cannot use another
scheme? I thought that the D:href has to point to the principal resource -
which the server MUST expose...

It is certainly desireable for it to be an http url, but I don't see that it
has to be one ... you could imagine using a mailto: url ...
