This is really disappointing, but entirely predictable.
People (and governments) are being sold on URNs based on
a false pretense -- that being "location independent" makes
an identifier more persistent.  To make matters worse, they
assume that NZL will forever remain the three-letter code
for New Zealand.  *sigh*
