I too would be interested in understanding why people in the life  
sciences don't use URLs, because I think the advantage of using them  
is absolutely huge. Being able to "GET my meaning" [1] makes the  
Semantic web so easy to explain, so simple to read, so beautiful all  
in all that one really needs to have an amazing reason not to go that  
way.
