Sorry - coming into this a bit late... but it seems to me that HTTP would
make the most sense when bundled with some standard we created for directory
listings, modules, etc.  In addition to being widely supported, it is also
easy to use HTTPS to create simple-encryption in addition to it being easily
accessed through just about any proxy service (if necessary).

I know that it would make much more sense to use HTTP when it comes to
mobile platforms (speaking from experience).
