Hey Melvin, a couple of other data points for you:

* I've had a number of discussions with Roberto and Lucas, who are
working on the HTTP Digest Fields specification in the IETF HTTP WG.
The last time we chatted, which was many months ago, I was suggesting
"mh" for the "multihash scheme". There was a general, "Ok, we'll add
that once it's defined tenor to the call"

* There are a number of us that are going to take some of the
Multiformats specifications into the IETF, namely Multibase and
Multihash:

https://www.ietf.org/id/draft-multiformats-multibase-05.html
https://www.ietf.org/id/draft-multiformats-multihash-04.html

... and where Multikey is going to be done is a bit up in the air
right now. We might define it first in VCWG, and then move it over to
IETF... or start it at IETF, we'll have to see what the VCWG wants to
do there.

One thing we could do is just define it in the Multihash I-D for now
and then register it as a provisional scheme w/ IANA:

Thoughts?
