I entirely agree, but the specification already includes DNS  
resolution as part of URI resolution and URI scheme definition, and  
as such, if you want all these things - which are, I concur, not a  
function of a transport protocol - removed from this specification,  
then we'll need a distinct document which adds them back in, as it  
were.
