I'm not comfortable with adding an optional URI. It implies that a
license could change on the web without the user knowing about it.
That really concerns me.

Yep. The schema will only be updated once we finish spec'ing. I don't
want to waste David's time updating the schema when the spec is still
changing. I might remove the schema all together till we get to last
call. It causes too much confusion at this point because it is
maintained independently of the spec.

Can you describe the confusion? What should I put into the spec to
make things more clear?

As above.
