Since we want permanent labels, I fear that tying them to a version of the spec and its anchors and/or sections, and location, might be fragile.  And, as Robin points out, we donít need choice.

I know URNs have issues when referring to things you might want to retrieve, but here we want a name that identifies what the track is for, and we need that name to be non-conflicting with other definitions and to identify who defined it.

Obviously itís a plus if it helps you find the documentation, but itís not strictly necessary.
