Hi, 

As a (more or less :-) neutral party, I'm working with Ron to try to put
together the "stone soup party" revision of the URN bakeoff. I know of
all the URN proposals that have been discussed on the list. Is there
anyone else out there that's working on a URN proposal that hasn't been
announced? For that matter, is there anyone out there that's no longer 
working on a URN proposal that has been announced :-)

Also, in Danvers, one of the URN proposals discussed was LIFNs. However,
as I recall, LIFNs contain meta data which led to some confusion as to
where LIFNs fall into the URI architecture. So I will pose this to Keith,
should LIFNs be considered in the context of URNs, URCs, or something
else?

Thanks,
Roxana
