Nits:

- replace <organization>: N/A by an empty string

- on the front page, note where feedback should go (IMHO the best place 
would be the IETF uri-review mailing list)

- in the introduction, I'd remove the positioning vs URN: and TAG:, it's 
kind of subjective, and is not needed here

- "abouturi = "about:" segment" - restricting to segment sounds good, 
but does this reflect reality?

- "About URIs are always escaped, as per [RFC3986]" - that's kind of 
misleading; either remove it, or clarify what you mean by that.

- "Acknowledgements" - move them behind IANA and Security Considerations
