I would prefer if this used some wording that avoids speculation whether
"JABBER:client" or "jabber:%63lient" are actually prohibited by this and
whether it is okay for individual schemes to specify such constraints.
Simply saying, for example, these strings are used as XML namespace
names and the scheme should not be used for other purposes would do.
