I fail to see the separation.

If you're not asking for the URN tags to be used in KIO and ioslaves, 
where are they to be used?

If it's just some locator data being used behind the scenes, why is it 
necessary to be an URI/URN/URL at all? Take the sql:// example: URL is 
ill-suited to represent the complexities of an SQL query. Better to 
translate it to something else as a string representation.
