Identifiers should have a URI form so that where they may be persistently and predictably resolved to multiple services within the internet.

A resolvable identifier is one that enables a system to locate the identified resource, or some information about it, such as metadata or a service related to it, elsewhere in the network. URI-based resolution requires both a URI format for the identifier and an implementation of suitable protocols (such as http or Handle). Some identifiers already have a URI form, but many standard IDs do not yet have a URI expression, and this is the scope of this target.
