[whatwg] Application deployment

What kind of a syntax is that??  JAR is not a protocol, it is a content
type.  It should rather be
<http://www.example.com/site.jar#path/inside/foo.html>.  It reads: retrieve
the resource "site.jar" using the HTTP protocol and look into it for the
fragment "foo.html".  I do not know how to read the original notation and I
think it should be withdrawn.

Firefox already implements this today with the jar protocol.  Put your
content into a zip archive and access it using this kind of URL:


I'm not sure many sites use this feature, but it has been a source of
several recent security issues.
