I wouldn't, of course, just as I wouldn't suggest someone use a
UUID for naming a hierarchical classification system.  Why don't
you present a more realistic example, like

  http://isbn.org/0066214130

or the more direct

  isbn:0066214130

or maybe stick to the very specific examples provided by the
internet-draft, like I did.

In any case, this discussion is over.
