The current text is:

   New URI/IRI schemes SHOULD
   have clear utility to the broad Internet community, beyond that
   available with already registered URI/IRI schemes.

I think "SHOULD" is fine. I think "MUST" would be problematic because it
would lead to fruitless arguments about whether the utility of the
scheme is truly clear and whether the community that would benefit from
registration of the scheme is truly broad.
