I think that the motivation is not just "because", but the TAG finding
on QNames that I'm sure you're familiar with:

| In so far as the identification mechanism of the Web is the URI and
| QNames are not URIs, it is a mistake to use a QName for identification
| when a URI would serve.

As this is internal to Addressing, it seems like a simple and natural
change to do.

So I quite like Harris's proposal.

Hugo
