#106 closed defect (duplicate)

Restore text about reverse domain name use for private URI/IRI schemes

Description

4395bis removed the following text from RFC 4395:

Organizations that desire a private name space for URI scheme names
are encouraged to use a prefix based on their domain name, expressed
in reverse order. For example, a URI scheme name of com-example-info
might be registered by the vendor that owns the example.com domain
name.

The reason is that there were no actual usages. But now, there is a use (see http://www.iana.org/assignments/uri-schemes/prov/com-eventbrite-attendee), as reported at http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/uri-review/current/msg01548.html.

I guess we should restore this text.
