[Ron Daniel]  It was the bit about "a URI for ISO9000" that
I was talking about. I'm just saying that organizations
like ISO that are actually responsible for those standards
are the ones who should assign URIs for them. We might as
a group come up with some interim URIs, then later declare
them as synonyms for the real URIs, but we can't assign the
real URIs for schemes like ISBN, UPC, ISSN, etc.
