There was a long thread about that topic on the list. I still don't 
agree with the notion of ownership.

Or if I would like to find an idea of consensus on this issue, it would 
be good to explain and define precisely what the TAG means by 

	It is useful for a URI scheme to establish a unique relationship 
between a social entity and a URI; this is the case for the "http", 
"mailto", "ftp", and "urn" schemes, for example. This relationship is 
called URI ownership.

URI ownership
The relationship between assigning agent and URI that is defined by a 
URI scheme.

I think that would be worthwhile to define ownership precisely, clearly 
BEFORE to discuss any kind of agreement on this issue.
