Yes, but you couldn't really take the URN and meaningfully do this with it:




but maybe


Sure.  According to URIs, //seairth.com/AbstractResource is considered
relative to the current scheme.  That assumes that there *is*  a current
scheme.  But tell me, can you identify what scheme my example is relative
to?  Now, it may be that the above format is not the ideal one to use here
(considering it matches a depricated form of the URI).  How about:


This format does not include the scheme, but could still be a valid URI, at
least as I see it.  Maybe you could think of this as the "anonymous" or
"generic" scheme.  Or is this format depricated too?
