File URI Specification
This document specifies how URIs for normal UNIX filenames (file: URIs) are interpreted and created. Its vital that all desktops/application use file URIs in the same way, or applications will be unable to interchange files when using things like drag and drop or passing filenames as URI arguments (as used in desktop files).
Discussion of this specification should occur on xdg.
