Ballot Text

Technical Summary
The prospero URI scheme was originally defined in RFC 1738.  This draft is part
of a  larger effort to provide scheme definitions for those schemes originally 
defined in RFC 1738, so that RFC 1738 may be marked obsolete.  This 
scheme is being marked historic at the same time, based on its limited 
use in the Internet.
Working Group Summary
The draft was discussed on the uri mailing list, and both this draft and 
the general effort have reasonable community support. 
Protocol Quality
This document was reviewed for the IESG by Ted Hardie.
