FYI, regarding the social responsibilities and expectations involved in
URI ownership and use, readers may be interested in the following paper
on "The URI Lifecycle in Semantic Web Architecture":
http://dbooth.org/2009/lifecycle/
It is a pre-print from the Identity workshop at the upcoming
Twenty-first International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence
(IJCAI-09).

Here is the abstract:
[[
Various parties are typically involved in the creation and use of a URI,
including the URI owner, an RDF statement author, and a consumer of that
RDF statement. What principles should these parties follow, to ensure
that a consistent resource identity is established and (to the extent
possible) maintained throughout that URI's lifetime? This paper proposes
a set of roles and responsibilities for establishing and determining a
URI's resource identity through its lifecycle.

Comments and suggestions are invited, of course.
