A brief aside from the main thread: I notice in
http://www.w3.org/2005/03/29-tagmem-minutes#item06
under "Issue httpRange-14" that you're reported as having said

	TBL: SWBPG has said they'd like to see resolution that any 
	     URI can be used for anything

That's a misunderstanding we should clear up straight away, to avoid
wasting time on side-issues. SWBPD WG was careful to scope things
to a smaller part of the problem space: 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2005Mar/0101.html
notes that we have concluded from our reading of the specs that
"an http URI without a hash MAY be used to identify an RDF property."

This is agnostic about whether physical objects, or certain kinds of 
abstractions, can similarly be identified with hashless HTTP URIs.
For now, we don't care about that. The concern is solely with 
namespace URI pragmatics. There's plenty more that could be debated, 
but the SWBPD WG's request was much more tightly scoped than 
"please let any (hashless HTTP) URI be used for anything".

cheers,

Dan
