*Please* consider ditching the HTML mail your mailer sends out.  I shall not 
quote from your message.

URLs on the Web are a sub-set of URIs, period.   URIs in RDF are no different 
from URIs anywhere else.

That means that if an RDF app uses URLs for identifiers, then it had better 
play by URL rules, or RDF thereby loses a great deal of its value and purpose. 
 I don't say that lightly.
