I think it would be a good idea if a majority of those people
inventing UR[ACIN] systems would look at the X/Open Federated Naming
work.  It includes many of the concepts and constructs people are
grasping for, and you'll probably start to see it bundled in O.S.
shipments within 12 months.

Unfortunately, I don't have a pointer other then "X/Open" as to where
to get the docs, nor the time/expertise to post a worthwhile synopsis
to this list.
