I have some nits:

   2.4. Declaration of the Syntactic Structure

   <URN> ::= "urn: " "globus" ":" <NSS>
------------------^

Remove this space.

   <NSS> ::= <SNID> | <SNID> ":" <SUBNAMESPACE-SPECIFIC-STRING>

You might want to change "SUBNAMESPACE-SPECIFIC-STRING" to
"subnamespace-specific-string" or "SNSS".

   <SNID> ::= 1*<non-colon chars>

   <SUBNAMESPACE-SPECIFIC-STRING> ::= 1*<URN chars>

   <non-colon chars> ::= <non-colon trans> | "%" <hex> <hex>

   <non-colon trans> ::= <upper> | <lower> | <number> | <non-colon
   other>

   <non-colon other> ::= "(" | ")" | "+" | "," | "-" | "." | "=" |
                         "@" | ";" | "$" | "_" | "!" | "*" | "'"

IMO, "<non-colon chars>" should be "<non-colon-chars>", etc.  (Though I
admit that RFC 2141 uses "<URN chars>".)
