The formal hurdles aren't supposed to be a major obstacle.  For your
draft it boils down to "validate the ABNF", "use the 'idnits' tool"
<http://tools.ietf.org/tools/idnits/>, "read the RFC about new URI
scheme registrations" (RFC 4395), and find a successful registration
based on 4395 as example - 4395 is relatively new.

And of course "follow 3986 rules", the ../foo issue.  But that's no
arcane IETF procedure, that's an ordinary bug found by Claus.
