Hi Erik,

First, thanks for the effort you're putting into this and apologies if 
it's rather late in the day to say what I'm about to say.

It's a small point but could I make a plea for a less verbose way of 
specifying the body?  It seems redundant to prepend "?body=" before the 
body text. You could instead have a syntax like:

sms-uri         =  scheme ":" sms-recipients [ ":"  sms-body ]
scheme          =  "sms"
sms-recipients  =  sms-recipient *( "," sms-recipient )
sms-recipient   =  gstn-phone sms-qualifier
sms-qualifier   =  *( smsc-qualifier / pid-qualifier )
smsc-qualifier  =  ";smsc=" SMSC-sub-addr
pid-qualifier   =  ";pid=" PID-sub-addr
sms-body        =  query

My main motivation for keeping things short and sweet is that, as you 
may be aware, one of the principal uses for this syntax is to put sms 
messages into 2D barcodes for reading and sending by camera phones (see 
www.activeprint.org). The effective capacity of such a 2D code (given 
current camera phone optics) is about 1-200 bytes so it's nice to be 
"lean and mean".
