LOL!! I was hoping to reduce it to one term but instead now we have three..

Fortunately URN has the same syntax, it is just a custom scheme. The
way I deal with that is that the user can parse the urn as a URL,
check the scheme, and then apply the scheme-specific syntax rules for
subdelimiters to the individual parts.

Yes I agree, I added that to the list of tasks.
