No, they are just marketing without a clue.  Does it go through firewalls,
or is it just

    file:/net/foo.com/resource

in a fancy wrapper?  Actually, I don't care -- I'm just tired of being
asked questions like "why use HTTP when (A|N)FS already exists ...".
If they don't know by now, then my answer wouldn't satisfy them either.
