Well, in this case the uri happened to be the namespace usually used to 
create prefixes for RDF QNames, which is IIRC how I came to write my 
post.  Sorry to have misrepresented your intent.

I have seen a number of discussions in the past about the (more 
explicit) dereferencing of namespace URIs - like your examples but more 
intentionally about namespace uris, but I don't have any pointer at hand 
right now.
