thanks for your clarification, sandro. and yes, i think the URIs should 
be iana.org URIs and not w3.org URIs (if HTTP URIs are chosen), and i 
have no idea whether IANA did have similar issues with their server 
infrastructure so far. i am sure all of this can be done in a way that 
works. since the URIs would be intended as identifiers and not really as 
links to interact with, the server load would be an unintended byproduct 
anyway. but it's good to know that it can be handled without an 
excessive amount of effort.

thanks and kind regards,
