I've posted the merged version of Lachlan and my drafts here:
	http://josephholsten.com/about-uri-scheme/draft-holsten-about-uri- 
scheme.txt
with inline comments and editing marks in html here:
	http://josephholsten.com/about-uri-scheme/draft-holsten-about-uri- 
scheme.html
and source control here:
	http://github.com/josephholsten/about-uri-scheme/

My changes mostly amount to adding the required IANA and Security  
Considerations sections.

As to whether different browsers use the exact same representation of  
the about:blank resource, I think that is content type specific  
decision, and belongs in the HTML5 spec. I'd care more that the DOM  
is identical than the actual document.

Lachlan, I don't know what you mean when you mention Origin in  
Security Considerations. Care to explain?

Also, I'm not on public-html, so I'm not sure what the best place to  
discuss this is.
