/ Dare Obasanjo <dareo@microsoft.com> was heard to say:
| MIME type based dispatch doesn't work in this case because the
| browser dispatches the representation to the waiting client but not
| the URI. In this case the only thing of interest to the client is
| the URI so MIME type based dispatch does not solve this problem.
| That is the purpose of the analogy to the mailto: protocol.

D'oh. Right. Nevermind my question, Tim.

This really seems unfortunate.
