Barring definition of a separate mechanism (do you mean a separate IANA 
mechanism for registration of IRI schemes?), I assume we should (1) 
proceed with registration of a URI scheme in accordance with established 
procedures and (2) define the scheme in terms of URI syntax rather than 
IRI syntax. #1 seems straightforward but I remain somewhat confused 
about #2 since previous IESG feedback indicated that it would be 
preferable in our case to re-use the transformation rules already 
specified in RFC 3987.
