But it doesn't. It just says that URIs 'provide a simple and 
extensible means for identifying a resource'. It doesn't
follow from that that the same URI can't identify different
resources on different occasions (or even, despite the singular
'a', many resources at the same time if the URI is playing more 
than one referring role at a time).

Cheers,


Miles
