Re: urn:uuid:c2f41010-65b3-11d1-a29f-00aa00c14882/

There is a process for registering URN namespace (RFC 2611) which this
namespace should follow. I've done others so I might as well do this one.
There are a couple of issues here though:

1) slashes ('/') are not allowed to be used un-percent-encoded in a URN
thus that leading slash violates the URN syntax rules

2) draft-leach-uuids-guids-01.txt (August '98) describes the UUID/GUID
algorithm and provides a way of creating one if you don't have a MAC
address handy. You can find a copy here:

My proposed URN GUID namespace will follow the DCE rules but won't
allow the slash (as required). It will reference the DCE spec but
will provide text for sufficiently unique system identifiiers without
a MAC address.
