The Blink team has requested that I inquire whether the WebKit team has a point-of-view about the upcoming change to limit HTML's registerProtocolHandler API to use from secure contexts: https://groups.google.com/a/chromium.org/forum/#!topic/blink-dev/1AOWqzgFQiw. This will disallow use of that API from non-secure (HTTP) contexts.
As I understand it, Safari does not implement the registerProtocolHandler API. In the past, WebKit contained the IDL for the API in (WebCore::NavigatorContentUtils::registerProtocolHandler), but this was removed earlier this year: https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/243433/webkit. Would anyone from WebKit like to express support or objection to the Blink I2I?
