I'm not completely up on URN formation, but I believe the "subversion:" in
your example is a "scheme". However, it is not registered, so it is
technically illegal to use.

"http" is a registered URI scheme, so we can use it without a problem.

I have requested the "svn:" scheme from the IANA, but they are rather
slow-moving... :-)
