This looks good to me.

It might be a good idea to include some information about how resolvers
might be found, or even, dare I say it, to solicit a commitment from one
or more meta-resolvers (e.g. n2t.net, identifiers.org) to offer support
for sub-namespaces on request.

Two nits:

  http://urn.fi/urn:meta:marc:bd245
yields
  Unknown URN.

  There are no (concrete) examples of the use of hyphen, it would be
  nice to have one
