Technical Summary This document defines the "info" Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) scheme for information assets that have identifiers in public namespaces but are not otherwise part of the URI allocation. By information asset this document intends any information construct that has identity within a public namespace. Working Group Summary This work is the produce of an individual submitter, but was discussed on the URI mailing list and extensively with those familiar with the URN system. There was significant dissent, but the discussion concluded that the new approach to URI scheme registration supported this use. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Ted Hardie Note to the RFC Editor OLD: [RFC2718] Masinter, L., Alvestrand, H., Zigmond, D., and R.
