Request for provisional registration: itms-books/itms-ibookss (Apple iBooks 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-books/itms-bookss schemes, which identify resources in apple's
iBooks store. it seems that in practice, itms-books/itms-bookss URIs are
increasingly replaced by HTTP(S) URIs with the prefix
http(s)://itunes.apple.com/ (and variations of this prefix, including
the domain ibooks.apple.com), but itms-ibooks continues to work and is
still used for identifying apple iBooks store resources.

here is the registration template:
