You miss the point. The fact that people already have port 80 proxies
installed doesn't matter. There's no way that we're going to standardize
IPP on port 80 - HTTP already has that port, and IPP is a different
service than HTTP.

Once upon a time, a lot of people had email only access to the Internet.
That wasn't an good reason for forcing every service to run over email.
