I have tentatively settled on this:

         IRIFactory fac = new IRIFactory();
         fac.shouldViolation(true, false);
         fac.securityViolation(true, false);
         fac.dnsViolation(true, false);
         fac.mintingViolation(false, false); // XXX do we want these?
         fac.useSchemeSpecificRules("http", true);
         fac.useSchemeSpecificRules("https", true);
         fac.useSchemeSpecificRules("ftp", true);
         fac.useSchemeSpecificRules("mailto", true);
         fac.useSchemeSpecificRules("file", true);
         fac.useSchemeSpecificRules("data", true);
         // XXX javascript?

The schemes for which scheme-specific rules are enforced are the  
schemes WF 2.0 knows about (plus https).
