I changed the first paragraph of the Introduction Section as follows:

    RFC 2369 [RFC2369] defined additional header fields to be added to
    email messages sent by mailing list managers (MLMs).  The significant
    change in this document is the use of Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)
    [RFC3986], instead of Uniform Resource Locator (URL), allowing an
    implementation to parse the common components of a URI reference without
    knowing the scheme-specific requirements of every possible identifier.
    The content of  each new header field is typically a URI  - usually
    "mailto" [RFC6068] - which identifies the relevant information or
    performs the command directly.
