Interesting. It would be useful to educate users as to why using URI  
schemes like this isn't a good idea, and illustrate the alternatives  
(namely, media types). I.e.,

If only we had some sort of technical architecture... board or panel  
(or even group!) to help document these things for the Web...

Seriously, though. Looking through the TAGs findings, I think most of  
the relevant documents are too dense to be useful to developers like  

How about a "So You Want to Create a URI Scheme" guide, with practical  
advice about when it's a good idea and when it's not, examples, trade- 
offs, caveats, and details of what this means in *existing* code?
