I'm ok with this from a not-interfere-with-the-Web POV, though I think
it's quite brittle as Walden noted.

One quick response.

That's a closed world assumption; it assumes you know that the real
resources (printers, invoices, etc..) don't have URIs and aren't being
used directly via HTTP as well as via some open interface.  This is why
I'm concerned about interference; I don't what a URI identifying a
printer to be overloaded with goop that makes its identity ambiguous.
