go look here for alternate view: http://www.loc.gov/marc/organizations/orgshome.html#struct
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4647 too.  The idea of unlimited scheme names does not sit well with me, personally: imagine a URI for the number pi.  PI = one number =one URI, pi is irrational with boundless digits.  Location (on a number line) and identification are different properties.
