[Geopriv] Naive question: LCP == LbyR?

I've got a simple question, that's basically captured by the subject
line: What's the difference between a Location Configuration Protocol
and an L-by-R Dereference Protocol? Compare two use cases:

LCP:
Step 1. Discover LIS
Step 2. Send query to LIS
Step 3. Receive LO / URL

L-by-R:
Step 1. Receive location URL
Step 2. Send query to dereference server
Step 3. Receive LO / URL

I realize that with an LCP, there's a additional need to identify the
target, but it seems just as easy to embed this into a URI or
dereference request as to use another protocol mechanism. And it seems
like using a single protocol for both would save us all some time and
effort.

Cheers,
--Richard
