Could you please refer me to the working draft of XRI 3.0 specification?  I can't find it on XRI TC web page.

Anyway, even though the new version is going to deprecate use of 'xri' scheme in URI mapped from XRIs, I think it will necessary to register the scheme for record, maybe in Historical category (http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4395#section-4); but for now, while work on XRI 3.0 is still being made, Permanent category should be Ok (RFC 4395 allows transition between categories, so once XRI 3.0 is published, deprecating the scheme, it may be marked as historical as well).

this actually came up on the list very recently and we're in the process of getting it registered. Thanks for the reminder though. :)

Hi all,

Reading the XRI TC specification and seeing the IANA registry for URI schemes (http://www.iana.org/assignments/uri-schemes.html), I've noticed that the 'xri' URI scheme, used when mapping XRIs to URIs/IRIs, isn't yet registered there.  Since there is a claimed use of this scheme name, I think it is necessary to officially register the scheme with IETF/IANA.  This might be done via publishing the Informational RFC. 
So what's your opinion?  If you think it is a good idea, I may help as an editor of an appropriate document.
