Minor tweak
'its status' is mildly ambiguous
suggest 'the status of RFC 1738'

​Yes, that's essentially my goal. I've written this:

| The "file" URI scheme is woefully out of date. The document that
defines
| it, RFC 1738, has been superseded by the generic URI syntax of RFC
3986,
| and its status is listed as "Obsolete". As such, the "file" URI scheme
| is viewed by many in the internet community as being without a current
| defining standard, and in need of updating to match current standards
| and implementations.
|
| This document defines an updated "file" URI scheme, promoting
| interoperability by being compatible with the generic syntax of
| RFC 3986, while enumerating commonly-encountered variations that have
| arisen during the scheme's long history of vague standardisation.

Does that suit?​ If so I'll give it to Murray to put in the wiki.
