This reminds me... One thing I'm really curious about is why "urn:" 
isn't on the official list of registered URI schemes.  It's got an 
RFC about it (RFC 2141), so why isn't it officially registered as a 
URI scheme?

URN RFC: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2141.txt

Unofficial scheme list: http://www.w3.org/Addressing/schemes.html
