RE: [schemeProtocols-49] New draft of proposed "URI Schemes and Web Protocols" Finding

I want to acknowledge the many thoughtful and in some cases constructively 
critical comments that several of you have sent on this thread regarding 
the scheme protocols draft.  The purpose of this note is merely to tell 
you that I have indeed taken careful note of all of them, and further to 
tell you that in our recent F2F meeting other TAG members expressed 
concerns that I think point in the same direction as the comments from 
Larry and others.

FYI:  the status of this effort is that the current draft is clearly not 
close to right, but the TAG has decided that it is indeed worth the effort 
to attempt another.  In the meantime I picked up one or two smaller TAG 
assignments, and in general want to think about the responses I've gotten 
before trying again.  So, I've indicated to the TAG that I will be working 
on schemeProtocols-49 in January, but there is no news to report in the 
meantime.  In any case, your input has been logged and will be carefully 
reviewed before I attempt any redraft.  So, it hasn't been lost, and is 
indeed much appreciated.  Thank you.
