Er, the disjointness of URLs and URNs is one of the few definite 
distinctions that is asserted by that document:

[[[
The phrase "URL scheme" is now
used infrequently, usually to refer to some subclass of URI schemes
which exclude URNs.
]]] -- (Last sentence of section 1.2)

I'd also say that the document plays down the "necessity" of distinction:

[[[
... the term "URL" does
not refer to a formal partition of URI space; rather, URL is a
useful but informal concept...
]]] -- (section 1.2)
