LSID still is not in the IANA URN namespace registry:
so from a standards perspective LSID is rogue.

The process for applying is straightforward (see RFC 2611). I3C  
should have done this but never did. I suggest that someone who cares  
about LSIDs should just submit the application and be done with it.  
 From my limited perspective it appears that TDWG might be in an  
ideal position to do this: technical savvy, organizational stability,  
a driving need...
