As one of the guilty parties, let me announce my schedule for
sending URN and URC info to the list.

Next week I will send a draft specification for the URC service.
I hope it generates a lot of discussion. After that, I will start
revising chunks of the URC scenarios draft and sending the new
stuff to the list as it is generated. After that, I hope that the
scenarios draft can move on to RFC status, and that was Michael
Mealling's intention the last time I checked.

I haven't formulated a plan for URN work at this time, having been
concentrating on URCs lately.
