The same logic would hold true for any unique identifier. Its content; It can be republished by a new owner (with appropriate uuid) or deleted... Either is okay.

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.
