[OpenID] Dumb Question: Why isn't http://xri.net/=bobwyman an OpenID?

If the proxy resolvers indicated by xri.ru and xri.joaquin.net are both
compliant and configured to point = to equal.xri.net (the XDI.org
authority resolution servers for the = namespace) then both are
equivalent.  The name is =Joaquin.

Thanks, Drummond.  

Just so everyone is on the same page, for each of the two URLs below:
  is it equivalent to some i-name?
  if so, which i-name?


(Let's first assume that each identifies a HXRI proxy resolution
service.  Then, if relevant, the case when they don't.)

Joaquin, sorry, it was getting very late last night, so I didn't put in
the full rule, which appears on the XRI TC wiki page on XRI Syntax 2.1,
The rule says:

A HXRI proxy resolution service is identified by an HTTP(S) URI in
1.       The least significant domain name begins with "xri." AND 
2.       The first character of the path is a GCS character (!, =, @, +,
$), i.e., the starting character of a canonical XRI. 

These two rules together should produce an diminimus number of false


Drummond, this smells strange to me.  But the only questions I can
formulate are:

-- How did you get from 'http://xri.net/' <http://xri.net/'%A0> to
'http://xri <http://xri/> *' ?
-- What kind of funny-business might happen with 'http://xri.ru
<http://xri.ru/> ' ' or ' http://xri.joaquin.net
<http://xri.joaquin.net/> '?

Cordially, Joaquin

Well, maybe this one, too:

-- Since I can run my own XRI root and resolver, ...  what?  (?)
