Agreed, except for the fact the XBS-Url is not meaningful as
XBS-Homepage. Namely: it's the URL of what? An URL is just a way to
point to the location of something, it doesn't tell what we will be
pointing to. XBS-Homepage tells what it is pointing to and uses a URL to
do that. Please people, let's push XBS-Homepage.
