These all look fine to me -- but they're URLs for individual data  
sources, rather than complete server installations.  Remove the last  
element and you'll get a server URL (e.g. genome.cbs.dtu.dk:9000/ 
das/) which ends /das/ in all cases.

The registry records datasources, not server installations.  In  
general, I'm not sure a server installation is a terribly  
"interesting" object, since it's quite possible that one server  
installation will host many datasources with little or no semantic  
connection between them -- the only thing they have in common is that  
they're hosted at the same site.
