Thanks, got it.  I've created a preliminary -05 version based
on it:

http://purl.net/xyzzy/home/test/draft-hoffman-news-nntp-uri-05.xml
http://purl.net/xyzzy/home/test/draft-hoffman-news-nntp-uri-05.txt

It integrates most of the changes discussed here.  It's valid
XML according to Bill's validator.  I've added the credits for
Alfred S. Gilman and a short explanation about snews.

The "wildmat" stuff is a syntactical nightmare, therefore I've
replaced it by a vague note and the original RfC 1738 idea "*".
For "common practice" that's exactly as it should be.

If Charles has no objection to be listed as coauthor and if you
find no typo - I have no spell checker, there must be typos -
and if you like it please submit it as I-D.  That requires to
change two characters in the XML source:

s/<!-- no I-D -->/<!-- no I-D - >/ in the 1st "no I-D" line,
s/<!-- no I-D -->/<! - no I-D -->/ in the 2nd "no I-D" line,
....................^..........^.. near the top of the source.

My XHTML script has no idea what XML is, but worked as expected
for Charles' plain text.  But the references and ABNF artworks
were time consuming. ;->
                          Bye, Frank
