[...some questions about LSID]

I answer: (a) There are lots of open source resolution service
implementations around. Google on "LSID resolution" and "LSID authority"
and especially see IBM's at
(b). I find nothing in the LSID spec would inhibit delegated issuance
(For example, the "namespace identification" part of an LSID can be
partitioned in a way corresponding to issuing organizations) nor
delegated resolution. For more technical response to the post, see and
feel welcome to contribute to
