A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts 
directories. This draft is a work item of the Uniform Resource Identifiers 
Working Group of the IETF.                                                 

       Title     : A Critique of Existing URN Proposals                    
       Author(s) : M. Madsen
       Filename  : draft-ietf-uri-urn-madsen-critique-00.txt
       Pages     : 4
       Date      : 08/22/1995

This document criticises existing URN (Uniform Resource Name) proposals in 
the light of generality, extensibility, and general futureproofing.  The 
idea is to draw upon the best characteristics of the existing proposals so 
as to converge on an acceptably functional and nonrestrictive draft 
specification for both URN syntax and resolution schemes.

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-uri-urn-madsen-critique-00.txt".
							
NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.
							
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.
							

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader 
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
