No, but please note that the HTTP APIs are not the full-fledged ones  
that had been proposed in previous drafts, but rather ones (getURL,  
postURL...) that would very likely have to be supported by  
implementations anyway since they have been available in the dominant  
implementations (at the very least ASV and Batik) for a long period  
of time, and a lot of existing content relies on them being there. In  
fact, that issue was a large part of the reason why we wished to add  
them since we would like in as far as it is reasonable to make widely  
used non-standard practices standard so that newer implementers don't  
have to reverse engineer what others have done.

Thank you very much for taking the time to comment on our  
specification, please tell us shortly if this further information  
does not satisfy your request.
