HPI is definitely intended to be remotable from my reading of the
specification.  Reference Section 3.6 and 3.7 of the HPI spec for more 
information on this.

If a consumer of HPI decided to use HPI only in a local context, and do
remoting above that line, that would be valid policy for that user. 
However, in general, there exists a need to have remotability of HPI

There is no silver bullet.  Plus, werewolves make better neighbors
than zombies, and they tend to keep the vampire population down.
