Just to be clear here: at least in my own mind there should be a small
number of service types here. Given the choice above I would prefer that
both 'web' and 'mobile web' be folded into 'browsing' and then whether
or not its the web or mobile web or even gopher [sic] be done as
a function of either the URI returned or an after the fact capabilities
negotiation (give me the WML page instead of the HTML page)....

In my mind at least, the service type has more to do with what
the user is attempting to do with the sls-name than what the registrant
of the name wishes the user to do....
