Um, in a word ... "yes".  This would go a looong way towards
clarifying alot of the issues behind the perpetual dialog about
interpretations and assumptions that web agents can make
authoritatively from the mechanics of the transport protocol.  In
addition, it would go quite a way towards resolving some of the murky
landscape regarding the intersection of web architecture and the
semantic web.

I've commented about this issue on various occasions on this mailing
list recently.  IMHO, this would be a *necessary* first step towards a
coherent framework for semantic web agents - something which is
seriously lacking at the moment and being filled by interpretations of
AWWW specs which lack a certain amount of axiomatic authority that
such an ontology would have.
