I'd like to suggest to those critical of RDDL (and supporters as well)
that there is an enormous amount of information on URIs, Namespaces, and
other forms of abstract madness, some of which may lead you to answers
you like better than RDDL.
For starters, there's some significant activity at the IETF on URI
processing, resolution, querying, etc. The main place to look is:
The bottom of that page points to a variety of RFCs and Internet-Drafts.
Dynamic Delegation Discovery Service (DDDS) is probably the most
relevant bit to this discussion.
(One key piece they don't list is RFC 2396 -
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2396.txt), the main URI RFC. I think there
are some related bits also missing from this URN-specific list.)
A lot of the RDDL discussion evolved from the infamous email@example.com
blowup. For more about namespaces and URIs than anyone ever wanted to
The first few months of that are the bulk of the conversation. More
recently, the list just seems to be a spam collector.
The firstname.lastname@example.org list functions better currently:
There was also a recent discussion on www-talk:
There should be a few good ideas somewhere in all that.
