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 firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list.
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.
