Dan,

I should have known better than to post two URIs that refer to the same
resource when talking to Mr URI!

:-)

You're correct that the schema annotation says that the explicit xpointer
version of the URI is the 'correct' one. Personally I think I prefer the
shorthand. Perhaps you/we could raise this as an agenda item and try to get
it changed to be the shorthand version?
