If i understand correctly the last draft for news: sheme 
urn:ietf:id:draft-ellermann-news-nntp-uri-01 
( http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ellermann-news-nntp-uri-01 ), 
it allow news:* and news://server.example/*, but not news: neither 
news://server.example/. I have seen several time the former in usenet,
but never the three first. "news:" could work like "ftp:" and "http:", 
as lauching the default usenet software (where is this specified in 
rfc 3986 ?). "news://server.example/" is like "ftp://ftp.w3.org/" and 
"http://www.w3.org/". Do you think that news: and news://server.example/ 
should be allowed ?
