Bill,
  I find your proposal to be very appealing, but I have a concern:  The
idea of explicitly naming a Naming Authority, which you've eliminated in
favor of explicitly naming a Naming Scheme.  Now, the Naming Scheme may
correspond closely to the Naming Authority, but I believe that it might
also encompass multiple naming authorities.
  In the latter case, is it not necessary for the r-name to specify the
Naming Authority in order to ensure that the r-name is unique?
