Well I don't object to URIs being used to uniquely identify web
resources. But I do object to insisting that URIs are used for
EVERYTHING, including words in a (programming) language. What is gained
by it? And what is lost? 
 
myuri:One myuri:might myuri:as myuri:well myuri:insist myuri:that
myuri:ordinary myuri:text myuri:uses myuri:URIs myuri:for myuri:every
myuri:word myurl:in myuri:English
