Technical Summary

This document defines a Uniform Resource Name (URN) namespace identifier
enabling generation of URNs that are appropriate for use in documentation,
private testing, and the like.

The document targets BCP, because it recommends use of these example URNs
as examples in documents.

Review and Consensus

Although not a WG document, it has been discussed a little on the URNbis WG's
mailing list (around http://www.ietf.org/mail-archive/web/urn/current/msg01844.html).
There was little feedback on the actual proposal (as opposed to philosophical
discussions about what URNs are for).
