There's been a vigorous discussion about the "acct" scheme and whether it is well enough defined, useful enough, etc. to warrant a permanent scheme registration. I don't think www-tag is going to resolve this issue registration -- the process is being followed and the expert reviewer has noted acceptance of the scheme.

However,  what might be productive for the TAG to consider:

The IRI working group in the IETF (http://tools.ietf.org/wg/iri/ ) is trying to finalize an update http://tools.ietf.org/wg/iri/draft-ietf-iri-4395bis-irireg/  to "Guidelines and Registration Procedures for New URI/IRI Schemes".

Please look at the criteria given for new schemes, and indicate if you think there are changes necessary, either as email to the working group mailing list (public-iri@w3.org) or in the issue tracker: http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/iri/trac/ .

Would you want to loosen or tighten the criteria for utility or definition?
