Windows Explorer (the file manager) does for example offer users to edit 
images upon right-click. I worry that if URI scheme handlers need not 
only take care of fetching but also of presentation, other actions than 
view will be unnecessarily hard to implement. Thus I figure retrieval 
and presentation must be separated.

(view (fetch uniform:resource/locator))
or
(edit (fetch uniform:resource/locator))

instead of
(fetch-and-view uniform:resource/locator)
