>So while we don't have to argue about the details where which bits go
in a resolution protocol, it's meaningless to talk about URNs
themselves without considering the resolution mechanism.

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.
