Ah, that's pretty good.  My reservation is its own custom registration 
process, in which everyone that wants to use info: would need to 
register.  With http: URIs, there really is no registration process 
because it works off of the structure of authority in http: URLs (which 
isn't just domain names, but the authority of subdirectories too).  It 
would be nice to have a URI scheme like info: but without the need for 
another registration.  So if you have the authority over http:X, you 
have the authority over newscheme:X.  One way to merge that with info 
would be to say if you own a domain name, you're automatically 
registered with that name in the info: registry.

Also, this is totally irrelevant, but I can't help but point out 
something a bit ridiculous (light sarcasm):

Who was the unique intended recipient of your email?  Was everyone else 
on the mail list supposed to shred their copy of the email?  :)
