Hi Carl,

Carl said:
A URL can be a URN if the creator declares it to remain unique.

Didier says:
False, it also as to conform to RFC2141 specs. Actually (until the next URN
RFC) a HTTP URL cannot be considered as a valid URN for several reasons:
a) non encoding of "/"
b) no "urn" identifier at the beginning of the name.
