And if there is consistent, uniform intersection of semantics
for a set of URI schemes, then define that semantics within
the scope of a URI class (URN, URL, URP, URT, URV, etc.) -- and
I assert that this is precisely why we need the classical
view of URI classification and that the taxonomy of URI Classes
must be formal, so that the knowledge about the semantics
of URI schemes and URIs can be expressed and available to
applications in a maximally efficient manner.

Cheers,

Patrick
