Thanks Melvin. Regarding the provisional bitcoin uri, I'll create an issue.
Several items related to that were in flux. E.g. we only fixed the
ecdsa-koblitz-pubkey prefix during that hackathon (previously was used with
bitcoin addresses, i.e base58-encoded hashes of public keys). For the
control keys (where we want bitcoin addresses), this may be useful.
