For the record: I agree with what Peter said.

In addition I'd like to remind everyone that overloading parts of the 
name this way can only be done once (there's only one prefix), and thus 
affects all future URI scheme names. So *if* we did something like this, 
it really should be done by the body responsible for scheme names (and 
that's the difference to that +xml media type suffix Maciej mentioned 
over on the HTML WG mailing list: it *was* introduced in an IETF spec).

Best regards, Julian
