Correct.

But I think the point was that it *hasn't* been registered.

All I can find is a draft published one year ago, and not updated since 
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-hoehrmann-javascript-scheme-00).

IMHO, these "identifiers", as used in HTML, do *not* identify resources, 
and thus should not be considered as URIs. (Which in turn means that if 
HTML5 wants to sanction these, it probably should define behaviour for 
them separately from regular URIs).

Best regards, Julian
