Regarding codes such as 1234.IETF.LTRU, I have to say that I don't
personally see the point. I very much agree that having a global
identification system is a good thing, but if we are going to use
such a system, it should use URIs (or IRIs) in order to be
compatible with Web technology. If ISO 11179 doesn't provide or
allow this, then I don't think it's worth considering (at least
not this aspect of the standard).

Regards,   Martin.
