This question is for those who propose to use the existing DNS namespace
for URNs:

How do you deal with information spaces and server hierarchies that
don't correspond to actual DNS name/server hierarchies?

For example, on our campus our Grants and Contracts department handles
documents that are 'owned' by other departments. This information hierarchy
is completely unrelated and almost completely opposite of how our
DNS server/name tree is organized.

How do you deal with it?

Life is a game. Someone wins and someone loses. Get used to it.
