That is a very clear explanation. Thank you.

I think a more salient issue might be that URI schemes can imply default
ports and name resolution mechanisms. As applications (imho, rightly) begin
to hide URI schemes, inventing new name resolution mechanisms will become
easier to do.

I think having a global namespace is extremely valuable, but I can see ways
in which short-sighted DNS arguments could result in fragmentation at the
scheme level.
