There's been some talk around here at OCLC about doing something about
this, especially to identify database-collections, which seem to be
entities people worry about too.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] Authority Control for Databases
Is anybody aware of any type of standard identifier for databases? Or
any movement to create one?
Matching on name seems very backwards.
If there's not a group trying to create said authority, how could
something like that be started? Would anybody else see value in this?
