Right; I gather Best Current Practice is...

If the registrant wishes to
   have a URI assigned, then a URN of the form


   will be assigned where <class> is the type of the document being
   registered (see below).
 -- http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3688.html

Meanwhile, you can get an http namespace name from W3C if you like:

"W3C provides the service of allocating and maintaining persistent URIs
so that those URIs remain stable during discussions. Allocation does not
imply any endorsement by W3C of the related specifications."
 -- http://www.w3.org/1999/10/nsuri

see for example http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom

Actually I think the .txt form is more official:

The full
   text of the specification is then available using the following URL:


   where "NNNN" is the number of the RFC being submitted.
 -- section 3.4.2 Submitting IETF Documents to JTC1

The /rfc/rfcXXXX form is supported by accident, as far as I can tell.
