I think so... it's approved for publication as Informational RFC.

I see an announcement dated 03 Nov 2005

I thought URI schemes had to be standards-track... but 3.2 The IETF Tree
of http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2717.txt seems to say that the IESG can
approve a scheme by agreeing to publish an informational RFC.

I can't tell if the new guidelines introduces new subtleties or not.

I don't know; the page isn't signed (in the sense
of http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/SignIt )and doesn't say what the  
latency is. A week or two would seem to be pretty ordinary. I guess  
it's been
about two weeks now.

Interestingly, the last update seems to be 3 Nov.

By chopping off the URI, I can get to http://www.ietf.org/ and
I get this clue, for what it's worth...
