Hi Chris,

The RFC queue delay in publication is currently somewhere between
8 and 16 months.  And last call and IESG decision is several more
months.

For this calendar year (2005), RFC 2717 is the URI registration
process, for better or worse.

Cheers,
- Ira

PS - Note that there is potential overlap in Paul Hoffman's
revision of 'file' URI scheme (or Larry Masinter's, if he
decides to go ahead with it) with 'smb' scheme for UNC names.

See draft-hansen-2717bis-2718bis-uri-guidelines-01.txt for the 
replacement to the URI registration process. It is just about to go 
through the last call process, so will hopefully be published in a few 
months. The new process is much simpler than the old process.
