Because if you gave a ereferencable URL, people might be tempted to dereference
it, which would be bad, since it wouldn't point at the article in question.

Certain UAs won't be able to guarantee that, e.g. because they store no state
and thus use a hash of the page and the page changes slightly each time the
page is loaded.
