Why not have the URI just a hash of those values?  Then the *two* nodes
describing you to your domicile would look somethihng like ...

language: Semenglish
DanC
    name "Dan Connolly"
    upu:to upu:us/qlerqjadaiudfpuekjfiapiejkdfd ;
    mbox mailto:connolly@w3.org.
upu:us/qlerqjadaiudfpuekjfiapiejkdfd
    usps:street1 "200 Tech Square";
    usps:city "Cambridge";
    usps:state "MA";
    usps:zip "02139".
