Hello,

Aren't URNs already being very commonly used for hashes.  For example...

  urn:sha1:dRDPBgZzTFq7Jl2Q2N/YNghcfj8=

  urn:md5:FNG4c6MJLdDEY1rcoGb4pQ==


urn:kzhash:0bf4c9a50c1058fb6887ad0419ecfc06dc192c69163ea2c45c632dab1cab1e1fbd6fbf1e

  urn:tiger:tree:ZAJPZOPES4YGIPNHLHDQHD5FHSAFSPIYG7IOO3Y

  urn:bitprint:
QLFYWY2RI5WZCTEP6MJKR5CAFGP7FQ5X.VEKXTRSJPTZJLY2IKG5FQ2TCXK26SECFPP4DX7I

Perhaps it would be good to keep with that format.

See ya
