[BXXPwg] SOAP over BEEP
Fri, 15 Jun 2001 00:04:06 -0700
I am perfectly willing to believe that things would break.
I had thought that "beep:soap://example.com/" to be valid
construction of a URL per 1738, is this not the case?

No, absolutely not. URNs would have been deployed seven years ago if
the authors hadn't insisted on adding a colon to the syntax. You have
no idea how many systems you would break simply by choosing
They may seem the same, but the first requires an algorithm change in
every deployed piece of Web software, whereas the second just requires
the addition of a plug-in handler.
Also, it is soap.beep (not beep.soap) to preserve the hierarchical ordering.
