Hi Chaals

We considered other URI patters and they were dropped as part of the 
normative/non-normative heuristic discussions under ISSUE-288 and 
resolved in March [1].

[1] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-bpwg/2009Mar/0174.html

Of course any resolution is open to being torn up and contradicted by a 
subsequent resolution, but before doing so I would appreciate detailed 
commentary as to why that is necessary given the depth of previous 
discussion on the topic.

FWIW as a passionate fan of URI Patterns for Grouping of resources I'd 
be happy to use that reference but for a list of 1 pattern it may be a 
bit excessive.

Yes, providing a pointer that explains what the syntax means (or even
copying it) would be a good idea.
