I've just registered myself a URL. I am now urn:oid:1.2.826.0.1.4062548.2.1, 
more properly written as a labelled OID { iso(1) member-body(2) gb(826) 
national(0) eng-ltd(1) warhead(4062548) private(2) alaric(1) }. However, it's 
not resolveable because *I* am not connected to the Internet. I could have 
one that acts as a lame proxy containing data about me that I've uploaded, 
but that's not me!

Also, check out the PIN namespace - http://rfc.net/rfc3043.html
