CT1 meets next week and then not until next year.

All this generating liaison statements will miss them doing anything about it until next year.

So please provide them with your input as an expert reviewer as soon as possible, rather than waiting for ECRIT to attempt to reinterpret the words of the RFC. It is then up to them to argue either for or against the spirit of the RFC and URNs in general.

Hi Brian,

On the other hand, we don’t have criteria in 7163 that would allow me, as expert reviewer, to just say no.

I disagree with this, on two grounds.  The first is that 7163 is clear that the registrations in this registry must be sub-services of the sos service.  This registration is not in and of itself a sub-service.
The second is that URN namespaces are intended to be managed, in order to maintain the persistence of the identifier and the persistence of the referent/identifier relationship. While it is possible to have delegated spaces within a URN namespace, the persistence is guaranteed by an agreement between the NID holder and those accepting the delegation.  Because this is an IETF namespace, that means that the agreement would have to be between the IETF and the sub-namespace holders; no such agreement appears to be part of this.  The risk is that a country-specific:country:identifier might be re-used, and the IETF would have no way to inform the group minting the identifier that this was not permitted.

My suggested course of action is to send a liaison to CT1 and request that they withdraw this request in favor of just using the registry as it is designed to work.  If 3GPP insists that they must have this feature, I’m not sure I have sufficient grounds to reject it, but I seek the advice of the work group on that.

I agree with your suggested course of action.  If they decline, however, I believe you have sufficient grounds to reject it.
