I take your point.

"The timelines for the whole process will take anywhere from nine
weeks to nine months, depending on the complexity of the submittal and
the timeliness of review responses."  Not good.

The way to do this would be to pick your URI and submit that specific
identifier as your proposal, so that when they finally get their arses
in gear nine months later, what they rubber-stamp is what you've been
using all along.

Well, at least try to propose for SRU purposes the same URIs that you
hope to have adopted by OpenURL.

Submittal?  What kind of word is that?  What's wrong with submission?
