Here are two:

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc2616.html> (yes, that was created 
by my own code, coded according to DC-HTML)

<http://www.esd.org.uk/standards/ipsv/> (this one was mentioned in 
earlier mailing list threads about @scheme)

It would be interesting to see whether this is used outside DC-HTML...

What I'm looking for is a combination of specs (HTML5 + extensions) 
under which documents using this do not become non-conforming.

As with other less-frequently used features of HTML4, I'm open to 
deprecating/replacing them, but if we do so there should be a transition 
period allowing migration to something else.

(This is related to Shelley's new issue "obsconf" (106), and the general 
discussion about conformance criteria.

Best regards, Julian
