Further to ISSUE-50, the record of a meeting in London on persistence
held in February 2010 is finally available [1].  Virtually all the
major URI schemes were represented by advocates, and there were
skeptics present in abundance as well.  Paul Walk of UKOLN (Bath) and
I formulated a candidate Best Practice, which somewhat to our surprise
was unanimously endorsed, as follows:

  [E]nsure that actionable http URI manifestations are available for
  any non-native http URI identifiers.

And we further agreed that

  [Owners of schemes should provide] agreed and consistent ways of
  constructing these manifestations.

I hope the TAG can endorse these propositions soon, and I hope to wrap
up my long-dangling draft on this basis.
