It is probably a protocol available to be 'installed' at your own leisure 
(i.e. the core beauty of OSGi). I have not bothered with it.

Since a protocol is a Service, I assume that the ServiceFactory mechanism 
would also work, in which case a protocol could "extract" context information 
from the "requesting bundle" and use that to tailor the resulting connection, 
including retrieving resources from with that client bundle.

I have not tested this for URLs but using something along those line in a 
Log4J bundle, where the "default config" for a bundle is retrieved from the 
requesting bundle.

I think quite a fair bit in Cocoon should use URLs and custom protocols, and 
implement those through the OSGi URL service mechanism.
