I don't remember making this decision explicitly.

However, I'll note that because of our component designator syntax, it
actually works well: supposing that a WSDL document lives where at the
target namespace URI — which is a SHOULD in our spec — you can
construct an action URI which is dereferenceable, which is part of my
argument against your proposal.

If the target namespace URI were a URI reference (well, except if it
was just using a trailing "#", I guess), it would not be the case.
