Yes, but hasIRI isn't actually used anywhere in the class. We define 
hasIRI as a semantic extension linking strings to URIs but then we 
gently ignore it and use regex for most things. Actually, if you succeed 
in using regex for port numbers and CIDR blocks then we should probably 
change the semantic extension to define wdr:regex directly. This is, of 
course, the grey area - more semantic gloop actually - that we're in 
here ...
