I don't think its up for debate which kind of URI people want and CMS
and web publisher struggle to support.

to facilitate. for email, IM, printed use of URLs, gain trust of
whoever clicks etc. (if tweetter made more sense in the way the count
characters there would be no issue with short ones)

Going again common sense and perception to "avoid potential trouble
200y ahead" IMO fails said check.
if some problem indeed arais with some URI i'd say just point to a
"disambiguation page" or "superceeded" or anything.
