Mykyta,

Just to make sure it's clear -- while it's fine to discuss things here to see if other IETFers agree, if you want your feedback to be noticed by the HTML WG, you'll need to submit it to them using the procedures they outline in the document. 

I've already forwarded the announcement to the IRI list, FWIW.

Cheers,

Considering that there isn't a strong decision on this draft, I'd recommend W3C not to include this text in the proposed document.  Mentioning that "about:legacy-compat" is to be used for a specific purpose in Section 8.1.1 (the same is with "about:srcdoc") seems fine to me.

It includes-by-reference the source code retrieval operation for these URIs (http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-hoehrmann-javascript-scheme-03#section-3.1).  I propose not to include it by reference but rather describe in the specification itself.  The algorithm contains only 4 steps so it shouldn't be a problem.
