Right, the final generation in the messages between Brian and myself
about the URC spec. Note the foreshadowing in my second sentence. :-)

No worries there. I will try to find our messages in my extremely
well-organized mail archives, then send them along to the URI list.

Yeah pretty much the same. Also, we will probably be adding some
meta-metadata elements to the default attribute set so that people
can look at the revision history of a URC.

Could be, although <URN:x-dns-2:etc would also work. It is the
www.vrml.org group that needs to define the naming system used
where you have "teapot" now.

I *really* hope we get some agreement on URNs at the Stockholm IETF.

Indeed. If they don't someone else will.
