We adhere to the "less is more" school for reasons of scalability,
discoverability, etc., as previously argued. There really is more to URI as
a naming architecture than HTTP alone. ;)

Note also that we are registering namespaces under INFO - not minting
identifiers. It is the /users/ of INFO URIs that get to mint the
identifiers. We do not control the identifiers so cannot - nor want to -
provide any resolution system.
