Not really, but I would object to anything that requires different 
resolution strategies for HTTP. If you give me an HTTP URL, I want to go 
get a representation (bit stream) without any further inspection of the 
path or query string or fragment ID. As long as I can do that, you're 
free to put anything in the URL or at the other end that you feel like.
