In effect, you are saying that usage determines meaning, not
architectural principles.  A URI in a SemWeb doc is treated differently
than when in other situations.  Local system prevails.

Ok but it means there is an operational disconnect between two
applications of the same abstraction: the URI.

It also means the advice from some to use URNs instead of HTTP URIs for
namespaces is good advice.

And the main point is that there is no actual *need* to put anything
there in cases like this. The SWeb software which is designed to use
URIs like this will never try to dereference them. That isn't what they
are for.
