Also just for the record:
Syntactically, yes. But what would be the base URI to resolve it to?
You can't get from "joe@gmail.com" to
"https://gmail.com/.well-known/host-meta?resource=joe@gmail.com" by 
resolution of a relative URI.

Anyway, as Larry said a few hours ago, what's much more important is 
that people who are interested in criteria for new URI/IRI schemes 
contribute to the update of RFC 4395 in the IETF IRI WG.

Regards,   Martin.
