I've raised ISSUE-45 for this.

Using a resource to identify a site, independent of the particular serialization conventions for its address, seems to me like a good thing (not that I'm biased or anything :)) and may be something that RegOrg could adopt. There's nothing to stop an org:Site having other expressions of address information.
