Dear all.

I would like to bring your attention the http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-uri-acr-extension-04  submission.

Technical summary:

   This URI scheme is intended as an extension to the "tel:"
   scheme but without disclosing the true identity of a reference or a
   user.  The "acr" URI describes an anonymous reference, that can be
   mapped to a resource or a user.  There are multiple situations where
   the true identity of a user or a resources can not be disclosed.  The
   "acr" URI is a globally unique identifier ( "name" ) only; it does
   not describe the steps necessary to reach the user or the device.
   However it can contain a parameter indication what body or
   organisation that could resolve it.  It is intended for privacy
   protection, where a user trusts a translating party, that can route
   or forward the request or message to the true user or resource.

This is an individual contribution, so I need help to bring this to a working group, and hopefully convert it to a permanent RFC in time.

Open Mobile Alliance is using this on multiple network enablers, to allow anonymous access to API's

Any advice would be helpful. :)
