Request for provisional registration: itms-apps (Apple App Store)

Erik Wilde
hello.

http://www.iana.org/assignments/uri-schemes/prov/itms is how apple's
iTunes music/media store has been registered as a provisional URI
scheme. this is a registration request for the corresponding itms-apps
scheme, which identifies resources in apple's app store. it seems that
in practice, itms-apps URIs are increasingly replaced by HTTP(S) URIs
with the prefix http(s)://itunes.apple.com/ (and variations of this
prefix, including the domain appstore.apple.com), but itms-apps
continues to work and is still used for identifying app store resources.

here is the registration template:
