Of course I'm aware of the previous discussion, that's why I pointed
out that the other side of the argument exists.  I didn't see clear
consensus last time, and the WG hasn't decided either way yet, so
both arguments remain to be considered.

And the Semantic Web folks may have different view on what can be
represented by a URI.
