Subject: Re: [xri] Solution for host-meta

If you want it to be a registered scheme use dns:example.com

The / are omitted because the authority is not required the host-name  
is part of the path.


I don't think you ned the port number.  One of the pints of host-meta  
is that it can be used by multiple schemes like mailto: if people want  

I don't mind making up a new scheme for this.

If we do that can we make up xri: as well for unbound XRI?
It would be the same argument.
