endPointRefs-47; it's about HTTP, not URIs

Greetings TAG,

I noticed in the recent f2f minutes that you discussed
endPointRefs-47[1] and seemed to (almost) come to some conclusion with
the following text (though awaiting feedback from David, I take it);

"Use of the abstract properties of an EPR other than wsa:address to
identify resources is contrary to WebArch"

While I agree with this (as I previously brought the problem to the
TAG's attention[2]), and with the gist of the minuted discussion, I
wanted to point out that the endPointsRefs-47 issue is a different
one primarily concerned with the abuse of HTTP (and other application
protocols), rather than URI abuse.

I thank the TAG for working to make a statement about the potential
misuse of EPRs (although I think the WS-A WG has already acted[3] to
address this concern), but would ask that you also give the HTTP abuse
issue your attention.

Thanks!
