hi xiaoshu,

since LSID v1 is standardized via the OMG specification, it, has hilmar
has pointed out, is supported.

if the community (or a portion of) using LSID decides to modify it in a
way that is incompatible with that spec (it could be modified in such
way it would be backwards compatible) then the prefix should change from
'URN:LSID' to 'URN:LSID2' (or something along those lines) to
distinguish what protocols to apply.

if the URI begins 'URN:LSID' then a user should have every expectation
that the methods for resolution specified in the OMG spec apply.

cheers,
michael
