If they share schemas and schema-validate the schema will tell them 
differently. If they don't schema-validate then they are liable to run 
into all sorts of case-mismatches, mispellings or uses of "-" instead of 
"_" etc.

Perhaps another thing to consider is that the RDDL document could define 
the canonical form of the URI so that users could be warned when they 
use anything else.
