I think http://xri.net identifiers instead of xri:// would be absolutely
wonderful.  

I had hoped that the finding, particularly section 5, would show that
http://xri.net identifiers have same or better value than xri://
identifiers.  Do you think we should provide more detail to suggest
using http://myri.org identifers?

Cheers,
Dave
