FW: Updates to URNs, Namespaces and Registries

Hi David (& All),

Your comment #10 is still missing the point of XRI persistence. The
*agency*department/docs/govdoc.pdf" is not intended to to provide
identity persistence and location independence. I think that example
probably came from line #281 of the XRI introduction paper at
d-04.pdf (which the XRI TC is hoping to rewrite/improve when they free
up some bandwidth). Instead, the example XRI designed for persistence is
on line #305:


The idea is that when "@example.org" gets registered, a meaningless
number is also assigned as a sort of alias. If the "@example.org" name
changes, the numeric version does not have to. I'm not saying that
solves all the problems, or that it is easy to administer such
capabilities. Instead, I'm just saying that section 5 (and David's
comment #10) is displaying a misunderstanding of XRI.
