So then we'll just have a profusion of URN namespace IDs! It would be quite
easy to delegate URI schemes in the same way that URN namespaces are
delegated: perhaps even with an informal URI scheme tree, "uri-1:",
"uri-2:" etc.

Because I've come up with a handful of URI schemes and URN namespaces,
earlier this moneth I came up with an article about why new URI schemes
aren't usually all that great:-

It's not finished, and it's not all that good, but it seems pertinent to
this thread.
