It is documented in RFC 2368 
<http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/htbin/rfc/rfc2368.html>, which has been out 
since the summer.

The syntax that appears in there is:

      mailtoURL  =  "mailto:" [ to ] [ headers ]
      to         =  #mailbox
      headers    =  "?" header *( "&" header )
      header     =  hname "=" hvalue
      hname      =  *urlc
      hvalue     =  *urlc

Note that reserved data must be encoded (spaces are %20 and so forth).
