The existing IMAP URL specification (RFC 5092) lists several <access>
identifiers and <access> identifier prefixes that can be used to
restrict access to URLAUTH-generated URLs.  However, these
identifiers do not provide facilities for new services such as
streaming.  This document proposes a set of new <access> identifiers
as well as an IANA mechanism to register new <access> identifiers for
future applications.

This document updates RFC 5092.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
