Yeah, I was confused by that too. In any case, WF2 doesn't, to my
knowledge, actually require support for HTTP (unlike, say, XForms, which
actually does). Could you point to the relevant part? I'd like to fix that
if I did indeed add text that requires such support.

In fact the spec specifically says:

# User agents may implement whichever URI schemes are required for their
# particular application. This specification does not specify a required
# core set of protocols that must be implemented.
