RE: [widget-uri] Widget URI ABNF definition comments


I think we should not mix Resource Identifiers with schemes and scheme names (aka semantics and syntax).
As for me WRI and XRI are schemes that follow URI/IRI syntax and define new scheme names and add semantics/interpretation.

I hope that the terms "scheme", "scheme-name" will be fixed in the upcoming IRI spec [1] (thus I CCed public-iri).

So we can have URNs, URLs, URIs, IRIs, and WRIs? i'm not sure that's
an improvement :)
Well, maybe not. But you forgot XRI by OASIS [1]. :-)
