Definitely add this stuff to the wiki Bruce.

Since both URLs and URNs are URIs I would like to see UID *recommend*  
that people use a URI. Perhaps this is dropping the barrier to entry  
too low...but it seems to be keeping the spirit of RFC 2426 3.6.7.

OK, now I sound like a lawyer...where's my paycheck!
