Ballot: Approve XRI Syntax v2.0 as an OASIS Standard
The W3C TAG has identified a number of issues with this proposal but the one I find more persuasive than the ones cited by the W3C is that registry services for the most part don't work. I don't doubt that the proposed services will gain some sustainable market share but that will simply complicate the problem without solving it since they will simply be "yet another solution to deal with this issue." DNS registry services, on the other hand, are universal for reasons that are unlikely to happen for XRI. Yes, the problem needs a solution but pouring money into the pockets of niche resolution services isn't it.
