I agree that the work on RFC4395bis shouldn't be blocked by this issue.

But that doesn't invalidate the point that assigning semantics to scheme 
prefixes shouldn't be done unilaterally by the HTML WG, and yes, I have 
a TODO to update my change proposal.

As a matter of fact, the IETF IRI WG hasn't been even *consulted* yet by 
us, so it would be kind of surprising to get an answer for a question 
that wasn't asked yet.

The only reason I opened the ticket over in the IETF IRI WG was to make 
sure the issue is tracked.
