Description

This was brougt up by Larry Masinter on the apps-discuss mailing list (see http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/apps-discuss/current/msg07948.html), in the context of a discussion about the "acct:" scheme:

You have to decide whether the scheme is protocol based (in which it really is tied to the protocol whether http, ftp, imap .. and has port and can have an IPv6 or IPv4 address)
Or it is *Not* protocol based and no port is needed, like mailto (with a host name but no port and no raw addresses) or tel:,mid:, cid: with no host name at all.
