That's not the case for the IETF draft we are preparing through—URIs are just (unique) identifiers. Does the W3C document mandate resolving for _all_ URIs (not just HTTP URIs)?

If the main advantage of tokens is that they do not resolve, URIs can do the same thing.
It seems that we are building a complex system to not really solve anything.

But my earlier questions still stand: what can we assume about clients that need to access the mapping? Can you (and hopefully several others) confirm that clients _always_ know the string of the token? Because if not, we don't even have a viable mechanism.
