Thanks for spotting the errors in that How to test, Annette. I've 
corrected it, at least, it now says what I intended. The text now says:

"Check that within the dataset, references to things that don't change 
or that change slowly, such as countries, regions, organizations and 
people, are referred to by URIs or by short identifiers that can be 
appended to a URI stub. Ideally the URIs should resolve, however, they 
have value as globally scoped variables whether they resolve or not."

Which makes no reference to the persistence of the URIs.

Is that OK??

I'm going offline imminently and heading for an airport so I'm afraid I 
won't be able to be of any help for the remainder of the day.
