FYI http://web.lookout.net/2012/01/testing-registerprotocolhandler-and-web.html 

Has the registerProtocolHandler and web+ proposal changed since Chris did his analysis?

Back on August 23, I saw two proposals:

 I can't speak for Thomas so I'll let him respond to this.

2- modularizing the HTML5 spec.
