Are you sure SNMP is the best way to manage HTTP servers, or you mean
MIB not as SNMP but more generally?

an URI may be
1. an URL (already defined in RFCs 1738 and 1808)
2. an URN (not yet defined, see work done in URI WG in
ftp://ds.internic.net/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-uri-urn-madsen-critique-00.txt
and RFC1737)
