ART community (cc DISPATCH and HTTPBIS, but please respond only to ART):

Based on conversations on the DISPATCH and ART mailing lists this past 
summer [1], and on in-person discussions that took place in Montreal, 
Mark Nottingham has produced a revision of BCP 190 that takes into 
account community input on several points. The changes are all intended 
to be relaxations of previously-enforced restrictions on how URI 
namespaces could be used.

The revised document is at:

And diffs from the current, in-force version of BCP 190 can be seen here:

This message is intended to serve as a final, two-week last call for 
input from the ART community before the document is put forth for formal 
IETF consensus. The final consensus document will be published as a 
replacement of RFC 7320 (formally, it will obsolete it), and will become 
the new BCP 190.

Please provide input on the document on the ART mailing list 
( by Wednesday, October 30th. To prevent the conversation 
from becoming fragmented, please do not respond to the HTTPBIS or 
DISPATCH mailing lists on this topic.
