No. I'm talking about the general principal - any legal URL should work
without modification. If `wget' can transfer it, Emacs should be able
to edit it in a buffer (It may be read only).
e.g. https://www.name.tld/foo/bar.html

(a) must be supported (any legal URL should work).
(b) MAY be supported - improvements are welcomed.

If there is no standard - there is no incompatibility.
If there will be standard for any of these methods - it should be
supported (note that the ftp standard is NOT supported).
