    There was no technical impediment to using

    The fact was that some TDWG subgroup conveners were not satisfied 
with the original choice of I suppose that the name "res " 
(which stands for "resources") was not self-evident as they wanted it to 
be. We brought the issue to the attention of the TDWG Executive 
Committee which then decided to use instead. It didn't make 
the domain name more self-evident, but the Executive thought the domain 
name did not matter that much, so they made the decision to help settle 
the discussion.

    I hope this clarifies the issue a bit.
