Technical Summary This is an individual submission for a URN namespace registration using a URN NID of "lex". The purpose of the "lex" namespace is to assign an unequivocal identifier, in standard format, to documents that are sources of law which include any legal document within the domain of legislation, case law and administrative acts or regulations. Working Group Summary This is not a WG document, but review on this document occurred on the URN-NID mailing list. Document Quality Specific feedback from Patrik Falstrom and Ted Hardy led to the following changes: - Section 2.4 Added the case in which a ccTLD code is re-assigned to another country - Section 3.3 Better specified that the urn:lex standard is case-sensitive - Section 3.4 Specified the possibility to convert non-ascii characters with Punycode encoding. - Section 4.6 The language of the source of law is expressed by BCP 47 instead of ISO 0639-1 Additionally, grammar rule productions were changed to ABNF and references using IDNA were updated to current RFCs at the request of the document shepherd. Personnel Document Shepherd: Andy Newton. Responsible AD: Alexey Melnikov URN experts believe that the "lex" URN should be registered.
