Dear Alexey, Dear Dale,
   being quite a long time since the last communication (June 2018), we were wondering whether any action from our side is needed before to proceed with the so called "experimental” registration of the URN:LEX namespace.
Thanks for any feedback you can give us!

Best regards
   Pierluigi and Enrico
