I'm not sure what the specific question is, but I would
certainly like to see a brief RFC that defined the term 
URI in relation to URNs and URLs, with appropriate
references to the latter two.  

Alternatively, it would be fine to define the term URI 
in the URL syntax document, perhaps with a title change
e.g. "syntax of uniform resource identifiers" -- 
It should briefly define URL and URN and refer to the 
URN syntax document for the specifics of URN syntax.  

either way would create a suitable reference for the term URI.
