These kinds of URIs are more used as API.  It will be difficult to use them
in the context of SW to identify resources.  For instance, will these two
URIs identify the same resources? 

http://...?email=foo@bar.com

and

http://...?email=bar@foo.com

It should but the semantics of URI doesn't not say so.  

It takes more than that to make it work in the context of semantic web.
