is "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" a valid yadis id?

As far as I can make out from the specification it is valid. For
example the Yadis spec says that a yadis id is
"A identifier used with one or more Yadis Services. A Yadis ID may be a
URL; it may be any other identifier, such as an XRI, that can be
resolved to a URL."
So if there is a rule that states that mailto: URL's resolve to
http://domain_from_mailto_address then mailto's are valid Yadis id's
e.g. mailto:robyates70 at gmail.com resolves to http://gmail.com. Am I
correct with this?
The reason that I ask is that we are investigating mechanisms to lookup
a user's free time from their calendar. See the later half of this post
http://robubu.com/?p=8 for details.
What is hard to do is take an e-mail address and resolve that to a
service (i.e. url endpoint) that provides a user's free time. Yadis
helps nicely here as the freetime service can be returned in the yadis
Any advice would be much appreciated,
