In order to be compatible with the w3 spec for custom url schemes it would be good if the chosen URI was prefixed with web+ e.g.

web+bitcoin://
This will be an epic failure for w3c if it goes through like this. Be sure to write them and tell them how ridiculous these custom URI rules are. More important to comply with the long-standing IETF RFCs, which we already do.

Sorry but I see no evidence that the web+ prefix is required, or even suggested by w3c.
This prefix seems to be requested only by Chrome, according to the page linked above.
I made some tests:
I was able to register a website handling "bitcoin:" in Firefox, using javascript.
The same javascript failed in Chrome, not because of the prefix, but because the method is not defined.

Then you can have your favourite website, not just desktop software, register itself as the bitcoin protocol handler.
Then you can have only a website register itself: normal/sane software is not allowed to register for these "web+" URIs.
You can register the bitcoin: protocol with a desktop app and a website. The popup window lets you choose when you click on a bitcoin: link. I tested it.

Your right I can't find it in the spec now either. Some mention on http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/iana.html perhaps they have depreciated it http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Aug/0397.html.

Put up a test page here:

bitcoin: registered with Firefox 9 - Chrome 16 would only register web+bitcoin:

Bump! This needs to be implemented! How can we gain widespread adoption if this forum doesn't even support bitcoin URLs?
