Re: [sieve] Proposed "pab" URI scheme registration for Sieve External Lists

How does this look to people:

I like it!


   This specification requests the IANA to register the
   "pab" URI scheme as specified in this document and summarized in
   the following template, per [RFC4395]:

   URI scheme name:  pab

   Status:  Permanent

   URI scheme syntax:

     paburi = "pab:" addrbook [ "?" extensions ]

     addrbook = segment
                ; <segment> defined in [RFC3986]

     extensions = query
                ; <query> defined in [RFC3986]

   URI scheme semantics: "pab" URIs are used for designating references
      to personal address books. A personal address book is an internal
      concept used by different applications (such as Sieve interpreters)
      for describing a list of named entries, and maybe translated into
      other types of address books, such as LDAP Groups.

   Encoding considerations:  Percent-encoding is allowed in "segment"
      and "query" components.  Internationalization is handled by IRI

   Intended usage:  An "pab" URI is designed to be used internally by
      applications for referencing address books.

   Applications and/or protocols that use this URI scheme name:
      Currently only Sieve External List extension is using this URI scheme.
      Email clients that use URIs internally might find this URI scheme
      to be useful as well.

   Interoperability considerations:  Applications are only REQUIRED to
      support "pab:default".

   Security considerations:  Applications SHOULD ensure appropriate
      restrictions are in place to protect sensitive information that
      might be revealed by "pab" URIs from access or modification by
      untrusted sources.
