Folks, I must say I'm frustrated by the lack of progress in this
working group because I think it's important to move URNs along on the
standards track. I was going to provide detailed feedback on
draft-ietf-urnbis-rfc2141bis-urn, but that too was frustrating because
I disagree with so many of the authorial decisions made in producing
that specification. Therefore I have decided to write an alternative
specification of 2141bis that I hope can serve as a starting point for
renewed discussion within the WG. Your feedback is welcome.

	Title           : Uniform Resource Name (URN) Syntax

   A Uniform Resource Name (URN) is a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)
   that is intended to serve as a persistent, location-independent
   resource identifier.  The general class of URNs is differentiated
   from all other URIs through the use of the 'urn' URI scheme.  This
   document defines the canonical syntax for URNs, guidelines for URN
   namespaces, requirements for URN presentation and transmission, and
   methods for determining URN equivalence.  This document obsoletes RFC
