I agree with you.  There *is* a need for retrieving metadata in an effective
and standardized way.  But is timbl's proposal trying to take up this task,
or something more limited?  It's likely that a solution to the metadata
retrieval problem would also be a solution for the proposal's stated
problem.  As a result, there's little point in focusing on this one issue
(URI identifier "ownership") if it's actually part of a bigger problem
(metadata retrieval).

As I said, I would rather see the TAG put their energy elsewhere,  even if
it's into the task of standardized metadata retrieval.
