Does that mean that we would have a specific URN scheme only for the
data type "BioModels Datatabase" in MIRIAM Resources?
If the answer is "no", this proposal (as well as your "xpath" one) is
possibly not usable, as some identifiers may use "." and therefore one
could not know when the "element" part starts.

Let's not forget that MIRIAM URIs/URNs/identifiers (whatever people like
to call them) are not limited to identify models, and when they do
identify some, these are not necessary SBML ones (where "species" has a
