You don't seem to give any reason why not.

I'm comfortable with the test materials as they are; I'm reasonably
confident that any decision on the URI issue will be consistent
with the materials as they are.

I would sure like to find a reason behind your opinion.

"This document is an example of an information resource. It consists of
words and punctuation symbols and graphics and other artifacts that can
be encoded, with varying degrees of fidelity, into a sequence of bits."

In what way does a book such as The Stand not fit exactly

No, it gave different results because your running used something
other than the published test materials as its input. The base
URI of the input document of the test

The test is deterministic in its present form.
