I went to this URL, and didn't find any documentation about URNs,
although I didn't spend much time on searching.  If you intend to have a
URN system, it would help to fix a URL that goes directly to where you
record comprehensive information about the URNs.  This might be a
natural extension of your existing Data Dictionary Wiki.

I can see a way forward by taking your examples and writing them up as
specifications in the wiki:  What is the overall structure of reso URNs?
What categories do they come in?  How are licensee IDs constructed?  How
are recorder organization and entity IDs constructed?  What is the
system for constructing URNs for Data Dictionary items?
