HTTP Draft-p1 and http scheme definition


The first mention of http URI scheme in IETF document (RFC) appeared in 
RFC 1945 (HTTP 1.0 specification).  Then, it remained unchanged (or was 
present with minor changes) in RFC 2068 and finally 2616.  RFC 2616 
appeared long before RFC 4395, that outlined the registration procedures 
for URI schemes.  What I'm pointing to?

The http scheme was never given a formal registration template, per RFC 
4395.  Its definition of current HTTP draft-p1 remains the same as in 
RFC 2616.  However, RFC 4395 requests the registration template for 
permanent registrations, that is missing in this draft.

The same concerns https scheme, also defined in p1.

Thus I propose to add them (templates) for these URI schemes in order to 
suit the requirements of RFC 4395 for permanent registrations.  Any 
thoughts on it?
