You're welcome - and thanks for altering the subject field, which I had meant to do. Apologies for my oversight there.

I have since found the use case for persistent URIs: http://www.w3.org/2007/eGov/IG/wiki/Use_Case_10_-_Persistent_URIs. The "Web Continuity" solution in the UK is remarkably similar to the one we are drafting. (There was also an initiative at our National Archives called "e-permanence", but they moved things around on their website and now I cannot locate it ~:{ )

Forgive me, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "the first comment".

I'll be very happy to, but it won't be on my employer's time. I'm absolutely passionate about communicating these concepts effectively.

Joining the group seemed out of reach when I checked it at the group's instigation. Is "invited expert" the only path for employees of non-member organisations?
