First, Wikipedia is not a normative source of information here.

Second, the article says the _term_ "URN" has been deprecated: instead
of talking about URLs and URNs and URCs (remember those?), we now just
talk about URIs and IRIs (I for Internationalized). In this way of
thinking, "urn" is just another URI scheme like "http", "https", "ftp"
and so forth - albeit one that you can't directly resolve.
