The more I think about this, the more I think it is out of scope for the
work we are doing. We are working on the wire protocol and encoding for
IPP, so ...

- Getting a port number allocated for IPP is OK
- Specifying that port as the default port is OK
- Creating a new scheme that never hits the wire and is handled inside
clients and servers is NOT a wire protocol issue.

While I think this material could be a interesting proposal and possibly an
informational RFC or maybe even more, I don't think it belongs in the
standard track RFCs that define IPP. While I am against a new method, at
least it is a wire level issue.

... my 2 cents worth ...
