As Geoff stated: you can use version-controlled resources, labels, or
baseline selectors to create human-readable URLs.

The version resource URL is (IMO) typically private and does not need to be
readable. Primarily, the URL needs to be *stable* and *persistent* (and note
that means it could be exclusive with human-readable).
