Good work! This removes all the concerns I had with the previous

Maybe we should avoid speaking of URIs which most persons don't know
about; the term 'Web address' is often suggested as a replacement for a
broader public. (I don't mind having the URI term being presented as the
official name for Web addresses, but I think we should avoid using it
for non-Web geeks).

Also, a link to "Cool URIs don't change" [1] would be appropriate, since
the topic of leaving out technology-specific details is also explained
in details there.

It would be worth asking uri@w3.org if they have any comment on it, too.
