This one bothers me as well. In fact, I expect I disagree but may lack
the conviction to continue pursuing it.

|   6. Namespace names should use URI schemes that are dereferencable.

That's better. But there are mechanisms which make URNs equally easy
to dereference, though perhaps we do not yet have a mature,
distributed resolution mechanism.
