in a resolution protocol, it's meaningless to talk about URNs

No.  URNs are going to be resolved in lots of ways over the next
decade alone.  Concentrate on getting a good URN design, then 
test resolution methods.  If you have to agree on resolution before
you can even create URNs, there won't be any.
