How Come There Is No ONVIF Defined Generic RTSP URL?

You know, something simple like

rtsp://my_camera_ip/stream1

that any ONVIF camera would be guaranteed to implement?

Wouldn't that make it easier to use or test any ONVIF camera? It's would have to be nothing more really technically than a RTSP redirect from a public standardized URL to the default internal stream URL.

Is there a good reason why they didn't specify such a URL?
