No, there are no standard requirements for the URI. This comes from Web 
Architecture in general, not just accessibility.

People may try to guess a URI if they can't find a more accessible 
version of your site, and think one exists. (One reason why WAI 
guidelines only recommend making a second version as a last resort). 
Something memorable is helpful.
