One comment, one nit:

1)

"7. Relative "about" URIs

    As "about" URIs do not use a hierarchical path, relative "about" URIs
    are not permitted."

I think this is misleading.

A relative reference, as defined in 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/rfc3986.html#rfc.section.4.2>, does 
not contain a URI scheme (by definition). So it's meaningless to talk 
about the scheme of a reference.

In doubt, just drop the paragraph.

2) The spec talks a lot about reserved "about:" URIs, but does not state 
how they can be reserved. I understand that there is no process for 
that, and that this is by design, but maybe it should be stated more 
clearly.

That being said, once the recent comments are addressed I would advise 
to request publication.

Best regards, Julian
