It's just that the schema.org designers don't seem to care much about the distinction between information resources and angels and pinheads. This is the prevalent attitude outside of this mailing list and we should come to terms with this.

Yes, until we demonstrate tangible value via useful real world 
applications that make a difference. Thus, outside this community, the 
deeper (and actual) value of de-reference (indirection) and address-of 
operations handling via Linked style URIs will remain mysterious and 
speculative.

A long time ago (pre. DNS) folks where uncertain about the value of 
associating names with IP addresses. Eventually, DNS caught on and the 
rest is history. We're repeating the journey with Linked Data (which is 
really DataDNS or DataObjectNameServices), end game will be the same :-)
