Hi David,

David said:
An URN built on DNS would suck serious wind.  There have been four
owners of spam.org so far that I know of, and nothing to prevent
each of them from issuing URNs based on that name which conflict.

Didier says:
Not necessarily. If the name space provider has a DNS server in its own
domain (ex: W3C). And if that DNS server includes records needed for URN
name resolution, you won't have name conflict. This obviously, if the main
domain is not in conflict itself. Let's say that the domain is W3c.org.
<Question> is this name in conflict with other DNS registered
names</question>. If you answer no. Then, there would be no problem with the
DNS based URN name resolution.
