Technical Summary The authors propose a "tag" Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) scheme and describe its syntax. Tag URIs (also known as "tags") are designed to be unique across space and time. There is no authoritative resolution mechanism for tag URIs; they may, however, be used as entity identifiers. Working Group Summary This is not the product of a working group, though discussion of it did occur on the email@example.com mailing list. Protocol Quality At the 2004URI BoF discussion on the appropriate registration mechanism for URIs came to consensus on a shift to a pure registration model, since attempts to discourage minting of new schemes has not resulted in fewer URI schemes, only in a larger number of unregistered ones. In the absence of a new registration document, new schemes which have been proposed as internet-drafts are being processed with limited review.
