Actually, "urn:" is further divided into namespaces, which may each
necessarily identify a subclass of resources. However, the "tag:" URI
scheme and "urn:tag:" URN NID (currently both in the registration process)
have no such restrictions, and make good identifiers for anything. "uuid:"
and "esl:" are also relevant (but unregistered...) URI schemes.
