BTW, on adding support for UA discovery of nonURL URIs, take a look  
at what Wikipedia can do with a ISBN:

<http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%

The "urn" and "ldap" URI schema I referred to is registered with IANA:

ISBN and other registered namespaces for the "urn" schema are here:
