Subject: FW: [xri-comment] Basic comment on XRI necessity and scope

FYI - Forwarding this comment received today on the xri-comment list.

The information Mr. Nebert is referring to is in the XRI Syntax 2.0
specification. But this is an excellent question that needs to be address in
the XRI 2.0 FAQ, white paper, and presentation materials.

Subject: [xri-comment] Basic comment on XRI necessity and scope

It is not clear from reading the documentation why the authors chose to 
develop a new specification instead of re-use and embellish the Uniform 
Resource Name (URN) scheme and resolver (IETF RFC 2141) which was 
designed for this purpose. I don't understand why a XRI is needed when 
URN management through IANA and designated authorities is already in place.

Proposed document should include a scope and explanation for the 
standing and capabilities of the XRI with respect to the existing URN 
practices, or be withdrawn as a proposed OASIS resolution.
