With respect to the upcoming W3C Semantic Web Health Care and Life
Sciences Interest Group f2f discussion of LSIDs, I wonder if you might
think seriously about adopting an approach similar to that used by the
ARK (Archival Resource Key) naming scheme [1].

_Very_ roughly, this would involve Semantic Web uses of LSIDs to use
an http-scheme version of LSIDs, along the following lines:

 URN:LSID:rcsb.org:PDB:1D4X:22 

- -->

 http://lsids.org/lsid:rcsb.org:PDB:1D4X:22

or, alternatively, as per my recent suggestion to Sean

 http://rcsb.org.lsids.org/lsid:PDB:1D4X:22

I strongly recommend studying the ARK approach in any case, as it
seems to me that although starting from a different subject area, its
requirements are very close to your own.
