Abstract

   This document describes a URN (Uniform Resource Name) namespace that
   is engineered by the Organization for the Advancement of Structured
   Information Standards (OASIS) for naming persistent resources
   published by OASIS (such as OASIS Standards, XML (Extensible Markup
   Language) Document Type Definitions, XML Schemas, Namespaces,
   Stylesheets, and other documents).

1. Introduction

   The Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information
   Standards (OASIS) produces many kinds of documents: specifications,
   working drafts, technical resolutions, schemas, stylesheets, etc.

   OASIS wishes to provide global, distributed, persistent, location-
   independent names for these resources.

   The Extensible Markup Language (XML) requires that all resources
   provide a system identifier, which must be a URI, in addition to an
   optional public identifier (which provides an alternate mechanism for
   constructing identifiers) and many evolving specifications require
   authors to identify documents by URI alone (XML Namespaces, XML
   Schema, XSLT, etc.).

   Motivated by these observations, OASIS would like to assign URNs to
   some resources in order to retain unique, permanent location-
   independent names for them.
