There was a request for a URN registration in December 2017.  That is 
not the same as a standard obtained within the IETF.

One of the comments from Mr Thompson was about the following: "The 
PWID URNs do not have to be assigned by an authority, as they are 
based on the information created at the time of archiving".  There is 
usually an entity managing a namespace on behalf of its 
community.  It is not clear who will ensure uniqueness of identifiers 
if there isn't any authority to makes the decisions.
