W3C is pleased to announce the public launch of the XPointer Schemes Registry:


The XPointer Recommendation reserved all simple (unprefixed) XPointer scheme
names to the W3C, but in the announcement of that Recommendation [1] the W3C
Director said:

    [W]e expect to bring forward a proposal for discussion in the
    wider community and approval by the W3C membership which will
    enable open, public and well-regulated use of un-prefixed schemes.

This registry is the realization of that commitment. It allows one to easily
determine whether or not a name is already registered as a scheme name via
HTTP, and offers a simple procedure, incorporating Team and public review, for
registering new scheme names.

The registry is governed by the following policy:


The W3C Team Contact for the registry is Henry S. Thompson <ht@w3.org>.
