Whilst I think this is a pretty cool feature, I was wondering whether it fits in with existing W3C addressing schemes? According to <http://www.w3.org/Addressing/schemes.html#finger> it isn't an "official" URL, although an IETF URI Working Group was working on a draft specification...

Any chance of Moz supporting a URL for IRC? <http://www.w3.org/Addressing/schemes.html#irc> ? ;o)
