DR200 says in part..

"1.Unique specification of the program or object and procedure or method to
be called based on URI syntax. "

I believe the intent of this is to say that "target" (procedure or method
belonging to 
some program or object) will be completely idenitfied with a URI. That being
said, 
I think the current wording could be a little more clear. For example, we
could use "identification" instead of "specification". Also, we could say
the identification is a URI, not "based on URI syntax". The "based on"
implies that there is room to invent a new identification scheme rooted in
the URI scheme.

Perhaps something like:

"1.Complete and unique identification, by means of a URI, of the program or
object and procedure or method to be called."

would be more a more direct wording.
