I note that this is a provisional registration, so the "demonstrated
utility" requirement doesn't apply at the same strength as permanent
registration.

Following the provisional template, there's a few tidbits of
information that should be provided (security considerations, chief
amoungst them IMO). But I'm also personally of the opinion that any
form of provisional registration is better than none.

FWIW, I also note the similarity to the abandoned "feed" URI scheme
from Microsoft some years ago.

Mark.
