Summary:

 From Joseph Reagle:
   "My primary question is an architectural one: are these acceptable
    replacements for URIs as identifiers within our specifications?
    (They're certainly easier to read!) What is the identifier, the
    string "foo:bar" or the tuple [0]? Do we expect all specs to
    treat them uniformly in the next version of XML? What about
    present versions?"
