   "The IETF has recently published RFC3205, "On the use of HTTP as a
   Substrate" [1] as Best Current Practice.

   This document makes a number of recommendations regarding
   the use of HTTP. Some are reasonable, such as guidelines about
   what kinds of scenarios the HTTP is most useful in, how to use
   media types and methods to extend the HTTP, etc. However, it also
   bases a number of recommendations on a fuzzily-defined concept of
   'traditional use' of the HTTP. These directives may seriously
   limit the future potential of the Web, effectively freezing its
   capability to common practice in 2001."
