We could do that, too.

But, what I like about the references to other protocols is that it makes people realise (hopefully) that the URL (fragment) syntax isn't restricted to http: urls, and is actually protocol-independent. For the query syntax this is true to a somewhat more limited extent too (it's only implementable if there actually is a server on the "other side").
