Pieter already addressed that, when he said:

I believe the proper way to use these is to use URLs– its extensible  
in the same space as URI protocols and requires zero invention by us.

Unfortunately, others (Apple *ahem*, Microsoft *ahem*), decided to  
use experimental properties instead of URIs.

Experimental properties are fine and great for trying out new things,  
but I wish they hadn't reinvented things.
