I am the expert reviewer designated by the ecrit working group for this request.

I believe this request is not consistent with the words and the intent of the registry.  “country-specific’ is not an emergency service.  Since the management policy of the emergency service is “expert review”, the barrier to adding new, possibly experimental services is low, and the consequences of having services that are not eventually deployed persisting in the registry is minimal.  The URN was not intended to have a generic X- service or equivalent, which is what this registration attempts to do.  New services, even experimental services, should register the service with IANA following the normal procedure.

Therefore, I recommend that we deny this request and suggest that the specific services be registered with IANA as they are deployed.  This decision has been reviewed with the ecrit working group.
