Indeed, the document convinced me that http+purls+content negotiation
(which is the chosen protocol for the semantic web!) would have been a
better choice than LSIDs. The document is referenced on several Wiki
pages, e.g. http://wiki.tdwg.org/twiki/bin/view/GUID/CommunityPracticesForHttp-basedGUIDs;
it helped me understand why the semantic web can be based on http at
all and that the perceived problems, that initially lead us to opt for
LSIDs, probably do not exist.
