Well  - there's alot of difference between a local device anda broadcast device. For one, broadcast devices deliver ATSC
or DVB
or DSS ... MPEG-2 transport streams (not worrying about analog
for the moment). Local devices may or may not - depends what
type of device we're dealing with.

Make a map with all the local devices and the broadcast devices that are not able to use the existing UR* scheme, except they could be upgraded to devices with an IP.

Another difference, broadcast
transport streams have unique names based on things like
network ids and service ids - this does not simply carry over
for in-home content.

If there is a concept it could be mapped or translated to suit within UR*.

Are you saying it's no problem to give my camcorder, DVD playeretc an IP address? It may be no problem imagining that
every
device in the house has an IP address - but this is different
from reality: many existing home-networkable AV products
are not IP-based, and many CE companies are working
on non-IP architectures for home networking.

Again, if the non IP architecture can be desrcibed in terms of non IP, it can be mapped to IP and if it can be mapped, any resource can be retrieved with URL's.
Maybe you would need an SP(SONY-Net Protocol) to IP Gateway, no problem. And no need to redefine UR*.
 
Of course I know your point of view might be right in the middle of my blind spot, still I believe we can focus it out, together.
