But neither does it indicate that using http in a URI 
to identify a resource the emits no representation is a 
good practice.  In short, don't use a string that one 
part of a system will process into a network address 
as a simple name or label which a different part of 
the system understands even it that part of the system 
is a human.  Don't shock the monkey.

I knew that was too easy. :-)
