Have you read RFC 2805 'URLs for Telephony' (April 2000)?
The fellow who developed it for the IESG is at Nokia and
wrote a series of I-Ds last year on a URL for GSM Short
Message Service. Perhaps we should send him a note?
In any case, expressing telephone numbers in URLs
(for voice, modem, fax, and any other service) is already
standardized in RFC 2805 (Proposed Standard), so we want
to use this prior art, right?

Yes, I would be interested, although I think there might be some confusion
between specifying a pager or short message service as an IPP notification
mechanism and actualy implementing it. Implementations are likely to differ
between countries. The original IPP notification spec had a provision for
pager notification, and that was all we needed.
I think that the special requirements of SMS may be similar to the Japanese
i-mode. Even if it is possible to request an i-mode notification as an
email, it might be better to treat it as a pager/short message notification
for IPP purposes.
Perhaps Yuji Sasaki is interested in joining in.
