RE: Namespace name: better to use URN or URL?

Yes.  It doesn't turn blue and the icon doesn't change.

Users aren't the whole problem.

What would happen if we were to use URLs with uncommon schemes? e.g.


Would this make new users less likely to assume they could resolve these
things while still preventing conflicts? 

Would this be legal? Is there any official registry for URL schemes or can I
just make them up as I choose? Certainly Java made up a lot (jdbc, jndi,
doc, netdoc, etc.) and provides an architecture (protocol handlers) for
supporting arbitrary schemes. However I'm not sure if that usage is approved
by the standards that be.
