Technical Summary

   This document describes a URN (Uniform Resource Name) namespace for

   technology is used in many applications, and this document provides a
   URN namespace for ucode to enable its use in Internet-related devices

Working Group Summary

   This document is not the product of an IETF working group.

   There was some discussion about whether it is appropriate to restrict 
   ucode URNs to only uppercase hexadecimal letters.  The author noted
   that ucode string are used as XML elements in some applications, and
   that XML element names are case-sensitive, so the restriction is indeed
   appropriate.
