Tim Bray: I’m almost convinced that this new Technorati Tags thing is important, but I’m 100% convinced that I don’t understand where it’s going or what the implications are. [cut] It turns out you can also just put <dc:subject>foo</dc:subject> in your feed (assuming you’ve declared the dc: prefix properly) which is shorter and (much & all as I love Technorati) arguably more open. Except for, as a Web-Architectural kinda guy, I like the idea of identifying categories with URIs. Except for, the whole point of that is that everyone can have their own, and Technorati’s setup only recognizes the ones beginning

Randy: You can definately have a URI tag scheme that is open. Unfortunately, it won't be a URL, it'll be a URN. Tim?
