I think this was the suggestion:

	http://loc.gov/lccn/{issn}/{date}/{edition?}/{page?}

However, I think we need a day to include constant text for the optional
part, i.e. something like:

	http://{domain}/{section}/{('my-'+data)?}/ 

This would match both:

	http://foo.com/current/
	http://foo.com/current/my-stuff 

Or some better syntax...
