I was invited to talk about RDDL at the Federal XML Working Group this 
morning (see http://xml.gov/agenda/20030521.htm).   As you might well 
expect, the discussion got into the URN/URL thing, and the XRI effort 
(of which I'm only dimly aware) got pulled in.  I pointed out our 
various issues and discussions and threads, and made the argument about 
persistence being a social/management thing, not a function of the URI 
scheme.

It was an interesting session; these are smart people who have real 
problems.

Can I claim that this discharges my action item?
