From a tool perspective, it can unambiguously locate a project

 "org.apache"  -> must replace "." with "/" before performing lookup

The implication of this is that generic tools can't parse the URI
and determine what is part of the product-specifier and what is
part of the version-specifier.

However, I don't think this is unreasonable. There is no requirement
that tools be able to parse URIs to extract meta-data.


I think easing the job for tools is a good goal.

We must support both Humans and Tools. I would favor Humans. But both humans and tools will have problems when some orginzation decides its project name is Beta or nightly, etc

I think we should consider  not allowing / in many of the parts.
