Add support for identification giving an id/id-source or guid instead
of a string?

Also, "Kingdom" may not be known and changing, but
dwc:nomenclaturalCode will always be. The same scientificName may
refer to different organisms under different codes.

comma is valid character in URLs.

...Only alphanumerics [0-9a-zA-Z], the special characters
"$-_.+!*'()," [not including the quotes - ed], and reserved characters
used for their reserved purposes may be used unencoded within a URL.
- from RFC 1738

Standard character to separate URL list elements would be the blank
