RESTful but not HTTP-based?

Harry Pierson says:

Yet, I get the feeling that the REST community would consider a solution that uses the REST architectural style but not HTTP and/or URI as “not RESTful”.

In general, I suspect that the community might balk.   But I happen to believe that a resource-oriented communications protocol should be implementation independent.   One should be able to implement a RESTful protocol in just about any messaging system.
