I've read several times your letter and can't understand your problem. Is it
purely academic or practical? In other words, if the local protocol is what
happens after all other known protocol syntaxes have been tried, why does it
need a special prefix? It's the last chance after the previous protocols
failed; if it can't open the file, too it will report failure.

You have said many times that before suggesting a solution, one should talk
about the problem. I can't see the big problem here.
