To clarify, this is a general meta-bug as opposed to one for specific back-end support for the URN URI scheme--there may need to be a seperate bug for that.

Yeah, general URN support would be quite important. At the moment, it's quite easy to add new URI scheme and protocol handlers to Firefox (which is often a "don't do" in the official guidelines of the w3c) but, in the absence of a base URN scheme handler, it's essentially impossible to add new URN namespaces without being sure that they will eventually conflict.
I wish to add that this is a big problem for OpenBerg Lector. At the moment, we're using a "library" scheme, but, well, by doing so, we're going against the W3C's recommendations. So we feel bad about it.
