This is my remaining concern. The draft uses /.well-known/ as the
base "locator". That severely limits its use. Access to
/.well-known/ is necessarily constrained.

I might want to identify a resource outside of /.well-known/. I might
also want to identify a resource that is served elsewhere. I can't do
either with this scheme.

I'd prefer something that allowed for the embedding of a complete HTTP
URI. Bonus credit for embedding a any URI.
