That minting any URI immediately causes its resource to come into being in the abstract. Some URI scheme specifications can restrict that it limits resource to be sequences of bits on a network but that is a limitation of that particular URI. We never set that limit for URNs. In other words, the rough consensus from back then was Julian is right, that ALL URIs identify 'resources' by definition. Merely being identified by a URI _makes_ it a resource.
