Why would that be ridiculous? FTP, gopher, email, and so forth, can all be considered, in some sense "HyperText Transfer Protocols", but if you suddenly insisted on referring to them as "HTTP" and spouting market-speak about how the IETF needed to "let go", you'd probably meet the same sort of reception you've been getting here.

I also find it interesting that despite the fact that any number of people have invented XML-based UI-descriptive languages, no one has raised any trouble about our use of "XUL" before, perhaps because they weren't engaged in half-baked schemes to put them all under one umbrella.
