Action item in re CP11

I have an action item to expand on my CP 11, which currently states:

 >CP11. Designers of protocols should give serious consideration to
 >avoiding such design activities in favor of existing well-established
 >protocols such as HTTP that fit well into REST.

I thought about this one and tried a couple of rewordings, and I just 
couldn't see a way to say this without getting into a fairly full 
description of  what HTTP does and saying "if you do this, use HTTP", 
but this is going to be quite lengthy, and on further consideration, I 
think not cost-effective, so I hereby withdraw the CP11 proposal and 
thus (I hope) discharge this action item.  -Tim
