Monero's existing mnemonic scheme simply translates back and forth between a 32 byte scalar and a 25-word checksummed mnemonic.

At the moment, that's used to store the 32 byte seed. There is no reason it can't be used to produce a mnemonic from the 32 byte private view key.

However, you need to know both your private view key and your public spend key in order to create a view-only wallet.

Therefore you'd have to store both the mnemonic and eitheryour public spend key (or your wallet address or just, which contains your public spend key). YourIf stored separately, your public spend key could be represented as base-58, hex, or as a second 25-word mnemonic.
