There seem to be double slashes where they don't belong in those 
proposed schemes; the "//" is supposed to be used where it signals 
that what follows is an authority (usually a hostname), and some of 
the above schemes don't seem to have any such thing in them.  
(Perhaps NASDAQ would count as one, but the others don't have any.)

There may be URN namespaces for some of the things you're using.
