Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: You're misunderstanding the requirement. This is not a
computer-checkable conformance requirement in the absence of information about
the vocabulary. A string that happens to be interpretable as a URL isn't
necessarily a URL. A sequence of numbers and dashes that happens to be
interpretable as a date isn't necessarily a date.

The requirement is intended to be used in conjunction with a vocabulary. If you
know a particular property takes a URL, then it has to be in a URL element.

I've added some prose to try to help explain this better.
