Did you perhaps mean "then it *can* have a name that starts with http:"?
Because I disagree with what you wrote there, as HTTP's request-line can
accept any URI, not just http URIs.

In addition, "can access" is also somewhat subjective, as some resources
can't be interacted with at "full fidelity" via HTTP, e.g. telnet sessions.
