Given that I have to dig around for that, agreed.

I was thinking of just working to make sure that a template name  
could be a URI, which is just a syntactic change; the other stuff  
could be hung onto that at a later date, if necessary.

E.g., we could say that if a var name is surrounded by quotes, it can  
contain any URI-legal character, a la:

{,&|name,"http://example.com/location",age}

Simple, and gives us some wriggle room down the road.
