An email address, of course. I had actually meant to say "once XMPP replaces
SMTP", not "once XMPP replaces email". We'd still have email, just a
different delivery mechanism.
As for knowing which protocol to use for a mailto, just remember that the job
of your client software, in interpretting the mailto URI, is to simply get a
message to your outgoing mailserver. The target address is irrelevant, as
delivery is the server's job. So it's not a matter of knowing what protocol
a remote address might use, but actually what your side uses, which simply
amounts to proper configuration of your local client.
