		In theory, everything that we (i.e., the web) are doing
with URLs
		should reallybe done with URIs.  Unfortunately, URLs
were "good
		enough" so that URIs never took off as they should have.
		
It's worth pointing out that both the HTTP/1.1 and HTML 4.0 standards
primarily
use "URI" and not "URL" in their specifications.
