I can see a glaring hole in the URI as a unique identifier

If large corp creates a product and defines the uri as
http:uri.largecorp.com/steamenginetype1

Sells a million but goes bust a while later what of the id
we now have a dead link breaking the chain
or worse decides it is an obsolete product and deletes all mention of it.
or largecorp becomes a subsidiary of fatcorp who redefines all id's in
its own image as they often do.
