Hi Tony,

An alternative would be to use identifiers.org (http://identifiers.org/) 
URIs. We've been working with Mark (Wilkinson) to transition his LSRN 
system (http://lsrn.org/) over to identifiers.org, and are in discussion 
with Bio2RDF. We'd be interested to know which namespaces you are 
missing for your work, as we could hopefully add them relatively quickly 
to the Registry at the backend
