Yep. Unless the arch doc is to be turned into 
a treatise on existence and semiotics, tell 
them to RTFM.

So then the Best Practice would be "don't use URIs
ambiguously"...  whatever "use" means.  It still sounds
the same to me.

Since identifiers exist for the purpose of eliminating
ambiguity, and URIs are just a class of identifier, is it 
really  necessary to exhort people to use them
for their intended purpose, i.e., to use them "un-
ambiguously"?

(Is that a rephrasing of your point, Len?)
