I wanted to use smtp:// URIs in X.509 URI subjectAltName values. My use

Mail Transfer Agents (MTAs). My colleague pointed out that smtp:// URIs 
are not registered with IANA (despite being used by several products, 
including at least one open source), so here is my attempt to register 
it. I am also registering submit:// URI scheme, which is a similar URI 
schemes, but for designating Mail Submission Agents.

Is your registration fully consistent with all those existing implemen-
tations? Is it necessary or beneficial for your particular use case to
use `smtp` or could you also use a different name if there are problems
with other existing uses of the scheme?
