[WARP] "uri" attribute is confusing

Hi,

The attribute "uri" on the <access> element in WARP is somewhat
misleading - what it takes is more a URL pattern than a URI. I would
suggest renaming it in "urlpattern" or just "pattern" (unless there are
already many implementations that rely on that attribute name).

There may be lessons to be taken in designing these patterns from POWDER
http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/REC-powder-dr-20090901/ - although I suspect
the POWDER expressivity needs are much greater than what is needed here.
