Any other comments or suggestions, before I submit this?  Notably this
document:

 - describes an explicit protocol for obtaining a URI owner's URI
definition, based on existing practice;

 - focuses on the mechanics of conveying a URI definition, and leaves
the meaning of that definition out of scope; and

 - focuses specifically on "http" (and "https") URIs, because this is
the case that is most relevant to practitioners and the case the
httpRange-14 addressed.
