I did that intentionally, to encourage readers to sympathizing with
Alice. Since S is described where it's introduced, I don't think this
is confusing. Good suggestion but I think I won't take it... maybe I
can bring out the surprise element somehow though.

I considered this. Actually u:u is meant to be a dereferenceable URI,
with scheme u, not a qname. In an earlier version I explained this but
took the explanation out for brevity, probably a mistake. (In an even
earlier version I used a metavariable U, which is better in some ways
and worse in others.) Using example.com just seemed too long - there
are 14 occurrences. Using a TLD does make it a bit shorter, so that's
good. (Then you don't even need the 'u'.) I'll give it a try and look
it over to see how it reads.

Thanks for the close read.
