I'll fix the ABNF (and reference) - I had problems with long lines on
the ABNF and obviously fixed the wrong way (removing the outside rather
than inside spaces).

Yep and I will fix the examples and I don't know how I missed that
helds: in the ABNF for HELDREF-URI as I did a global search (thus
incorrectly changed the URI for the LIS in the examples). And, I'll
change that https: reference to helds:

Thanks to Mary for the hard work put in updating the document. I've
just submitted lis-discovery, which should be compatible.

There are a few minor errors in the latest additions:

The ABNF should reference RFC 5234.

The ABNF requires spaces on the outside of the square brackets (but not
inside of).

The ABNF for HELDREF-URI still uses 'helds://'

The 'port' component is still optional in the ABNF. Without a default
value, it makes no sense to allow its omission.

The examples that show the HTTP headers should use the 'held:' URI
defined in lis-discovery, not the reference defined by this document.
This document is describing the LCP, not the dereference protocol.
There is still mention in Section 11.1 of an https: URI.

I remain unconvinced of the need for two URI deref schemes, but I'll
take that discussion offline.
