This was to permit the ACME-specified ".well-known/acme-challenge/"
path, without having to be ACME-specific [1].
While "acme-challenge" is not yet registered at IANA [2], the ACME WG
intends to register it before the 6 month
adoption period expires.

I think we could aim to be more specific here in a follow-up ballot.
