Re: [dxwg] Reference ARK (#514)

Proposed text for the "related work" section:
> ARK (Archival Resource Key) [ARK]( is an identifier scheme for the persistent identification of information objects. ARK identifiers can contain an optional qualifier that „that extends the base ARK in order to create a kind of service entry point into the object named by the NAA [sc. Name Assigning Authority].“ Through a qualifier, any NMA (Name Mapping Authority, service provider offering ARK resolution) can supply access to variants of that object. There set of qualifiers is open and any ARK NAA or NMA can invent its own. The ARK specification lists versions, languages and formats as examples of qualifiers (§2.5) and but a profile name could be used as a qualifier to refer to a representation of an information object conforming to that specific profile. E. g. could return metadata for the object identified by ark:/12148/btv1b6930739z using the profile ‘edm’.
