If the intention is that HTTP URIs should be used, it's better not to say that URIs should be "technology agnostic".

HTTP URIs are not technology-agnostic; they rely on the HTTP protocol which is a particular technology, and on DNS which is an implementation of a particular routing technology.

I would suggest: 

"Use [...] HTTP-based Uniform Resource Identifiers (HTTP URIs) to address resources in a consistent way."
