FWIW: there is a long history in the TAG relating to the whether/when we 
should encourage the use of http- and https-scheme URIs in preference to 
others. In at least one case, we played a role in convincing an external 
(non-W3C) group to move toward use of http URIs.

I'm not in a position to summarize all that history just now (I'm at a 
conference), but your chairs should be able to find the highlights :-). If 
you do decide to write a note, I suggest you review the earlier discussions.
