If Roma is allowed to pull in includes via HTTP at all, then I would say
yes. It might be helpful to have Roma give diagnostic messages whenever
it grabs a file via HTTP, just to alert the user that this is happening.
(There can be nasty surprises if a user doesn't realize that schemas are
being fetched over the network, in cases where they are not accessible,
so a diagnostic would hint that they might want to copy all the files to
a local filesystem for performance reasons.)
