I am. It's adding variety where none need exist. URI schemes _should_
refer to RFC's or failing that to I-D's. sftp:// is in such an I-D.

The key issues - training is IMO equally well documented by something

Archive access methods:
tla supports a number of different mechanisms to access archives. These
local file paths.
ftp:// urls - the well known RFC1738 ftp.
wftp:// urls - a tla specific hack which uses a different parser for
directory listing.
http:// urls - rfc2616 and 2518 (http and webdav) access. Respectively
read-only and read-write.
sftp:// urls - ssh version 2 sftp subsystem urls - currently documented

IIRC there's something like this in the wiki today.

It's just a shame google doesn't hit the arch wiki - a real shame.
