Do the quotes around the first sentence indicate that it's all that's
proposed goes in the WSA spec?  Or is it the whole paragraph?

I think that even a few words about *why* it's good to only identify
with URIs, or at least suitable references to the relevant principles in
AWWW, would help.  e.g.

http://www.w3.org/TR/webarch/#pr-global-id
http://www.w3.org/TR/webarch/#pr-use-uris

Other than that, it looks fine!!

It looks like this issue is nearly resolved then, and that's great.  But
again[1], I feel I have to point out that what's being resolved, while
important, is largely orthogonal to the issue that was accepted.  So
could you please create a new issue?  Thanks.
