And the HCLS domains are filled with examples where label-URI would not
work: for example, hypothetical proteins (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypothetical_protein), would not be named are
not named and yet we know they exist.

Should we give these hypothetical proteins a numeric URI but all other
proteins a name? How about when they are "graduated" into real proteins?
Should everyone just stop using the hypothetical-protein-URI and change into
the newly named protein-name-URI?
I think that would be a recipe for disaster :-)
