That's a bit like saying that e-mail addresses should have a way of
identifying transport layers instead of SMTP.
Pingback is an XML-RPC-based system. XML-RPC is trivial to implement now,
and there are dozens of libraries available. (I use Perl's RPC::XML, for
example.) I honestly don't see why we need to complicate the system to
allow for all these other mechanisms, especially given that I've provided
code to translate to and from XML-RPC pingback calls, which can be run on
any number of machines, as required.
BTW, there's an HTML front end to my client proxy now for people who want
to do manual pings:
