Yes, that is interesting. Where did you find it, Henry?
hmm... perhaps from http://www.cdlib.org/inside/diglib/ark/

For reference, here's the title page info:

Towards Electronic Persistence Using ARK Identifiers

                         California Digital Library

Kunze himself cites it as:
 Towards Electronic Persistence Using ARK Identifiers,  J. Kunze,
Proceedings of the 3rd ECDL Workshop on Web Archives, August 2003,

in his CV

The technical spec is an Internet Draft; Internet Drafts
are notorious for going 404 themselves, but I found a
hidden source of persistent identifiers for IDs a while ago:
