Sorry if this is a dumb question, but does it make a difference to
people's opinions about schemes like this if the intent is that the
scheme *could* be used outside of the framework of HTTP?  

In other words, would it be an acceptable excuse to say "sure 'ical' by
default dereferences over HTTP, but that is just an implementation
detail that is unimportant to the 'ical' scheme itself, since it
sometimes uses UDP or other transports depending on context."
