Subject: Re: [xri] Solution for host-meta

The trust profile for SSL certs is going to have to deal with those  

It seems simple on the surface but taking SSL certificates out of  
there natural environment can have challenges as we have seen in IMI.

In any event we need a URI that can contain the host name for  
hostmeta,  and not be confused with a regular resource URI.

We are close to http range-14 territory.   If we don't want to  
describe a host as a non-information resource,  what is the URI.    
That is the crux of the problem.
