Is anyone interested in working on a URL syntax to specify network
addresses in other than IPv4?  I believe it would be very useful
to have standard representation of addresses for AppleTalk, IPX,
SNA, etc.  

If there has been some work done in this direction, please let 
me know.  If not, or if the work has stalled, I am interested in
taking it forward with some positive proposals and collaboration.

My interest is in discovery protocols (I am a coauthor of the Service
Location Protocol.)
