Re: Registered namespace prefixes

Re:  Registered namespace prefixes
You're very welcome Rich. 

In relation to DNS: You may also be interested in knowing about the
fairly new OASIS Extensible Resource Identifier (XRI) TC [1].

From [1]:

"The purpose of this TC is to define a URI scheme and a corresponding
URN namespace for distributed directory services that enable the
identification of resources (including people and organizations) and the
sharing of data across domains, enterprises, and applications. "

This TC will be leveraging the XNS (Extensible Name Service)
specifications from OneName, released in July 2002 [2]:

"Whereas DNS (Domain Name System) is a protocol designed for federated
naming of Internet hosts at the TCP/IP level, XNS is designed for
modeling and managing the identity of any actor at the SOAP level,
including people, businesses, machines, applications, objects, classes,
etc. "
