can go on with the experimentation, perhaps to actual use soon enough.

hm, reading that "Those that are not of sufficient interest to the
internet community, or that don't want to describe their schemes, should

which is essentially the same as the hash? except that there seems to be
additional information, like the mime-type in some schemes:
hash-nss   = [media-type] ":" [hash-scheme] ":" hash-value , as was with
these blocks too. but how would these map, actually? i mean something
like: urn:hash:image/jpeg:sha1:09u_MG#%... or what? seems so based on the
