Looking at the abstract and examples, the scope isn't very clear to me.

http://dret.net/netdret/docs/draft-wilde-sms-uri-19.html#uri-examples

 "for specifying one or more recipients for an SMS messages"

- grammar seems funny; "recipients for an SMS message" or "recipients
for SMS messages"
- does an sms: URI identify a recipient in general, or a recipient in
the context of some specific message? I assumed former until I saw
sms:+15105550101?body=hello%20there

"In this case, a message (initially being set to "hello there", which
may be modified by the user before sending) will be sent via SMS using
the user agent's default SMS delivery method."

It might help if you list the classes of thing that this scheme
provides identifiers for? ie. an sms: URI could be an identifier for

 - a single sms-capable account
 - a list of sms-capable accounts
 - one or more accounts plus a draft message

cheers,

Dan
