Your view of "trivial" and that of the readers of this future spec 
probably differ. Don't forget that half of the readers of this spec 
will have below-average understanding of URIs; please consider them 
when you decide whether or not there should be a set of simple good 
and bad examples.

FWIW, I regularly get letters from implementers who don't understand 
the rules for mailto:, even though they are just as trivial as those 
in this document. Just one data point, of course...
