Hi,

I'm adding IANA and Thomas Narten (author of IANA considerations  
docs) to this thread to get early IANA feedback about this idea.  It  
may well be a good idea, but we definitely want to think it through:

  - A registry for HTTP URLs in the IANA domain
    ... including a HTML or XML document hosted by IANA on its  
Website at the location specified in the registered URL
   ... which means that end-users and developers will use these URIs,  
perhaps very frequently

What do we know about the W3 experience hosting namespace URIs with  
actual documents at the URIs?  I've been hearing rumours lately about  
something like this causing expensive levels of traffic, but I can't  
recall the details.

Lisa
