I have emailed Internic to find out their views.  However, I do not
believe that an FPI is property.  I believe it is common and accepted
practise to create FPIs for published material using ISBN, and that
the IDN can be used in exactly the same way.  

ISO 8879 says 4.223 owner identifier "The portion of a public identifier
that identies the owner or originator of public text". 

I read that to mean that it would actually be wrong for me to use myself
in the owner field.  The owner means the owner (or originator) of the
public text, not the originator of the FPI.
