Both 'cid:' and 'mid:' exist in RFC 1630. They weren't included in RFC 1738 mainly because at the time I couldn't figure out what they were good for, I knew of no implementations, and there were no volunteers to review the specification of them. All of these conditions no longer hold. In arriving at new URL schemes, I think RFC 1630 is a good baseline document: if you change it, have a good reason.
