Meant to say:


Here is the problem, as I know it. We are using hyperlinks as a 
mechanism for data representation via HTTP URI based Names. The URI 
abstraction caters for two things via *Schemes*: Names and Addresses. 
When trying to untangle the unintuitive nature of HTTP URIs, as a Naming 
mechanism for Things (e.g., real world entities or objects), a narrative 
have emerged aimed at *tackling* the "hyperlink usage ambiguity problem" 
and its emerged in a manner expands the aforementioned ambiguity to 
generality whereas this is just a function of HTTP scheme based Names.
