Taken together this probably means that a URN probably
needs two components, and that we need to be able to
process/handle the two separately. Still, I think they
also need to remain bound together as in gopher menu
items. So, perhaps this means a URN should look like:

  <naming authority>:[<optional human readible string]>:<unique ID>

but how does having a new readable string help me transcribe
the unique ID?
