It's not the same.  

Imagine, instead, that you are on a LAN with static IP addresses and
haven't had one assigned to your box.  You call the sysadmin, and she
says "don't worry, just make one up -- if TCP/IP suddenly stops
working, you can increment the address and try again until
everything's OK."

It certainly sounds easy enough -- as I mentioned, once there are
well-defined NIDs available, they will be useful for XML namespaces.

Where is the list of NIDs registered with IANA so far?

Thanks, and all the best,
