How about modularizing HTML5 so that "registering protocol handlers for URI schemes" is in a separate document from HTML.
Can protocol handlers be registered by anything other than text/html? Can SVG register protocol handlers?

Two observations:

a) in the meantime, the HTML WG chairs have decided to reject my CP and 
to keep "web+" in the spec (see 
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2012Aug/0115.html>)

b) all feedback I've seen over here seems to come from people either 
active in the IETF, or both IETF and W3C; what are the next steps to 
actually make progress now?

Best regards, Julian
