Alan,

My response is purely about managing Identifiers that are used as 
functional unambiguous Name or Address References. Not quoting a W3C 
spec. Basically, expressing a view based on my understanding of what's 
practical.

A system (e.g. a database or client app.) can (should) make a decision 
about how it handles resolvable Identifiers when used as Name or Address 
references.
