The sftp I read the spec for wasn't.  It was a (misleadingly named)
remote filesystem access protocol, much more like NFS than like FTP.

draft-ietf-secsh-filexfer-12.txt is what I'm basing this upon.  As far
as I can tell no RFC has been issued fpr sftp yet; what spec are you
basing your statements upon?  Perhaps it's been scled back since -12.
