I don't believe OGC URNs offer anything over EPSG identifiers, since
there's no way to resolve them? Either way, it's just an opaque string
that a client has to understand -- except in the case of URNs, fewer 
clients understand them, and there's currently a dichotomy because
the 'current' URN usage is all via x-ogc.  Am I wrong in some of these
points somehow?
