That's why Ron and I came up with the overview and the syntax documents.
They give an overall structure but allow many different solutions to
resolution.
draft-ietf-uri-urn-res-descrip-00
draft-ietf-uri-urn-syntax-00

We also proposed one solution that can coexist with any of the others that
people want to add to the structure.
draft-ietf-uri-urn-x-dns-2-00

To date, we haven't heard much criticism of the structure, and it still
seems like it is fairly broad and inclusive.
