Sorry to respond to the middle of a thread - I'm traveling.

Arnaud's position seems odd to me.  Dereferencable URLs are always good IMO, but should Linked Data become somehow invalid if a URI doesn't dereference?  Of course not.  That suggests that dereferencable URLs are just a Good Thing, but not mandatory, just as they are in RDF.

Sorry to be philosophic, but I think our shared mental model bears on Andy's questions.
