[relates to OAI-implementers digest, Vol 1 #426 - 5 msgs]

A number of IMS specs have played with this 2 part/1part problem. RDCEO 
(Reusable Definition of Competences and Educational Objectives) talks about 
URN scheme, and I think we had assumed that the catalog would map to the 
NSS and the entry to the NID. We also considered URL#fragment identifier , 
where the fragment identifier was the entry part. The RDCEO binding 
actually used a single identifier string, whereas the information model DID 
follow LOM practice.

Exactly what the significance of LOM catalog might be is probably another 
question, and one that is intentionally open I think. Is it necessarily 
more than an _indicator_ of the creator of the identifier?
