As requested, I started to work on the update of Ian King's
(stagnant) draft on 'vnd' URI schemes.

However, I've made substantial changes to Ian's draft, based
on comments about the use of '-' for alternative trees
in RFC 2717 (instead of 'vnd.' it uses 'vnd-'); I've also
changed some of the proposed processes based on what
I think will fly with IANA. To correspond to the MIME
process, I allowed schemes without a vendor name.

The document is still very much 'in progress'. I haven't
heard back from Ian in a while since I pinged him, so
I thought I would go ahead and circulate a pointer.


"The vnd and prs Trees for URI Scheme Names"

Also as


My guess is that this should be coordinated with RFC 2396bis.

Comments? Suggestions? Please look at 'security considerations'

It's missing 'Appendix A' which is the registration form.
