Really useful! However, someone else may use

   http://xyz/resolve?lsid=
     urn:lsid:ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.lsid.biopathways.org:genbank_gi:5851672

or

   http://xyz/
     ncbi.nlm.nih.gov.lsid.biopathways.org/genbank_gi/5851672

or who knows what else...

I think the DOI system got this right; they specify that an identifier such 
as doi:10.1000/182 can be resolved using http://xyz/10.1000/182, where xyz 
is your favorite resolver server.

Any chance to see this being standardized, as a light weight alternative to 
the web service resolution mechanism?
