A while back, I saw this and didn't respond. I sorta thought somebody 
would challenge it or clarify it in due course, but I don't see 
anything like that:

Who is the "we" there? Is this requirement really established?
I don't need a new standardized way to abbreviate URIs.
There's XML base, &entities; (ugh), relative URI references, and even 
local short-hands
that I can transform via XSLT/GRDDL. So whoever "we" is, count me out.
