Well, actually, this IG is chartered to provide exactly this sort of 
review:

"The scope of the URI Interest Group encompasses:

     * review of URI/IRI issues between W3C and the IETF, including 
monitoring maintenance of the IANA URI scheme registry"

I guess I can see that point. I'm not sure whether I agree.

That one is also covered in the charter too:

"Note: the mailing lists uri@w3.org and public-iri@w3.org follow the 
rules of IETF applicable to mailing list usage (section 8. NOTICES AND 
RECORD KEEPING, RFC2026)."

I don't feel that strongly one way or another which mailing lists are 
mandated
as part of the process, but I felt it was important to clarify that the 
W3C URI IG
_is_ fairly carefully chartered to provide this service, if the IETF 
wants it to.
