Hi Larry,

I'm still not sure that this makes a lot of sense. An MD5 content
identifier would look something like this:

   cid:md5:PEFjWBDv/sd9alS9BYuX0w==@md5.w3.org

We would probably have to escape the / and + character in the
base 64 encoding. I don't see why this is better than:

   urn:md5:PEFjWBDv/sd9alS9BYuX0w==

What does the "@md5.w3.org" add?

Have fun,

	Arthur van Hoff
