Well, URI schemes must be registered with IANA. You should contact
them to see what they have to say. I would be surprised if they didn't
suggest that you use HTTP instead.

Given that you only need an identifer, not a protocol hint, there is
absolutely no reason to invent a new URI scheme for this.
