The move to create an URL registry should save you this trouble
in the future.

In the mean time, here are two potential sources of edits:

1. Lynx supports a few URL schemes e.g. tn3270 that you didn't
mention and might want your readers to be aware of.

A current snapshot of the related help documentation is retrievable via:

  URL Schemes Supported in Lynx
  http://sol.slcc.edu/lynx/current/lynx2-7-1/lynx_help/lynx_url_support.html

2. There is an Internet-Draft which suggests updates for news,
snews, and nntp schemes in
