Thank you all for the feedback!

"Application and Packaging Pointer (app) URI scheme"

Addresses:
* More emphasis on "apps" again
* (I think) all of Graham's comments
* Added mobile app example
  https://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-soilandreyes-app-04.html#rfc.appendix.A.1
* Added authority prefixes "uuid" "ni" and "name" and simplified
  https://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-soilandreyes-app-04.html#rfc.section.3.1
* Semantics of schemes explained at
  https://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-soilandreyes-app-04.html#rfc.section.4.1
* Removed references to retrieve the archive file
* ?query permitted again (but undefined semantics)


The downside is you may consider URIs look slightly uglier with 
prefixes:

app://name,gallery.example.org/photos/?New
app://uuid,32a423d6-52ab-47e3-a9cd-54f418a48571/
app://ni,sha-256;F-34D4TUeOfG0selz7REKRDo4XePkewPeQYtjL3vQs0/file.txt

Still.. not too long!  (And in fact we could avoid "name," because DNS
names can't have ",")
