I'm not speaking for the original proposer of this requirement, but
the understanding of the WG (which I think I understand and can
represent) is "embeddable in an HTTP URI". No one on the WG has
suggested we register a new URI scheme.

There is an outstanding ACTION item to rework 3.8 to remove this
ambiguity.
