I suppose there's precedent for such a scheme, had me thinking of data:
for some reason.  But, I don't believe URI is the proper solution, more
like a way to avoid solving the problem using HTTP headers.

Specifically, it's a Content-Encoding, with out-of-band decryption key.
I'm against putting this key in the HTML, HTTP headers make more sense.
