Fair question!

I mean information which could be considered part of the identifier.
And by "identifier", I mean, in practice, a token which can be used
repeatedly to refer to the same "thing".

One could certainly make the claim that RefParams are themselves an
identifier, and I think they'd be right.  But what they identify is
orthogonal from what the URI+RefProps identify, which is the endpoint;
they identify some chunk of shared contextual state.
