Re: [dxwg] A short token to specify a profile may be used as long as there is a discoverable mapping from it to the profile's identifying URI [ID5] (5.5) (#290)

APIs with published tokens that describe what those tokens mean in documentations arent that easy  to change compared to adding a way to map them to URIs so such documentation can be found in future. yes they are just strings - but we are talking about strings that exist in the world - for example I have lots of data where such tokens have been used in entailed links based on the object type and what services will respond to it. 

If those APIs are published standards, so changing token strings to be URI versions (agreed they are just strings)  is even more complex than just changing the systems.
