[tdwg-content] Idea for Discussion, Differentiating between "type's" of identifiers

I second this.

One of the advantages of GUIDs over normal, domain and scope specific
identifiers is that they work independently of rules. The TDWG-LSID to
resolvable, semantic web compliant http-URI rules partly break this,
requiring knowledge about http to LSID to http conversions, and in
which situation which form would be the canonical form.

A pattern supporting resolvable, sw-compliant identifiers in parallel
to LSIDs itself avoids this.
