  Indeed, I wouuld say that the current anarchical state of the net while 
very healthy , would also mandate that any transcopyright system (and any 
system meant to allow commerical publishing) be clearly identified in an 
ubiquitous manner. 
  Using an unique header such as  xu:// would not only help this but would 
also allow the freedom to use a different transport system further down 
the track if neccessary. Transpublication and other electronic 
publication systems have both requirements and importance enough to 
warrent their own classisfaction apart from the broadcast systems 
currently in place.
