HTTP tends to be one of the first things that gets forced through a
proxy when people try to conserve bandwidth, while FTP generally gets
left alone.  In some cases I've even seen HTTP proxies that won't fetch
things except from other proxies ("we're not paying for downloads for
you, but if there's a copy hanging around...").

Anyway, it's not a major issue - access to Incoming is normally not
essential.
