Fwd: Last Call: 'Mounting Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) servers' to Proposed Standard (draft-reschke-webdav-mount)

I'd particularly like to solicit reviews of this document from these  
mailing lists -- see last call details below.

There are two basic approaches I know of with today's browsers to get  
them to launch a specialized application: one is to use a new MIME  
type, and the other is to use a new URI scheme.  This document uses a  
new MIME type to launch a WebDAV browser.  The W3C TAG group has  
discouraged the other approach, the use of new URI schemes, and I  
plan to follow up with our W3C liaison and related group on whether  
they have positive recommendations.  Since I've seen half a dozen  
different things out there, some of which come before the IETF/IESG  
and some which do not, it would be good to have some precedent and  
discussion at least.
