Okay, sure. :)

I am guessing IANA's response to a request for registering a new URI
scheme would be "why not use HTTP?" - so along those lines why not
publish an RDF profile at http://purl.org/posix/ and use:

  http://purl.org/posix/stdin
  http://purl.org/posix/stdout
  http://purl.org/posix/stderr
