Well, I'm a visitor to that working group, though I'm authoring the 
drafts.  So I can't presume to speak for the working group.  But in 
terms of pragmatics, I think adapting the type of language I've put 
forward for SRV and URI meta-specifications out to work.

The essential change in thinking, for the dns-alt-svc document, is to 
refer to the global (right-most) _underscored name conceptually as a 
'scheme', but then direct its explicit listing in the new global 
underscore node name registry.
