I've published draft-holsten-about-uri-scheme[1], which defines the  
about URI scheme. It is ready for public review. There is also some  
background for the scheme under HTML ACTION-103[2].

The main outstanding issue is a normative reference to HTML5, which  
defines some behavior for about:blank. It seems wrong to normatively  
reference a working draft, and the best way to solve the issue isn't  
clear.

Thank you for your consideration,
Joseph Holsten
