The existing urn:uuid is already a URN. The change will allow urn:uuid 
URNs as well as any other valid URN to be used as id value of a 
RegistryObject as long as the value is unique within the registry. Note 
that registry assigned id would still be required to be urn:uuid URNs 
under the proposal.
