That's fine - I just wasn't sure what exactly the example was saying,
and if it's a matter of "pointing to an element vs. pointing to a thing"
the drafts discussed at the URL I provided just amplify that we're
pointing at elements in this process.  

I think that means I agree with your perspective, unless I've missed yet
another step in the URI dance.

Simon St.Laurent - SSL is my TLA
http://simonstl.com may be my URI
http://monasticxml.org may be my ascetic URI
urn:oid:1.3.6.1.4.1.6320 is another possibility altogether
