And provisional registrations do enjoy the protection of unique tokens.
None of the experience we have with the path from one state to another
would encourage us to believe that it will be simple or easy, and indeed
one may well argue that it SHOULD NOT be easy to attain permanently
registered URI schemes.

That leaves innovators who want to start that path, or simply want to
develop community-bounded 
schemes entirely unprotected from duplication.


Will someone please address this simple question?

The current draft doesn't leave uniqueness of URI tokens as
indeterminate, as I understand it. Permanent registrations are unique.
