I had interpreted your scenario as using a common URI as you explain.

But there are still several resources here, but they are not all exposed on the 
web or assigned URIs.  I'm appealing here to anything that *might* be identified 
as opposed to things that actually are assigned URIs.   (For example, the 
proposed duri: scheme might be used - 

(And the URI is perfectly "cool" if it is specifically intended to denote a 
dynamic resource.  A URI used to access the current weather in London can be 
stable if properly managed.)

(I think this is all entirely consistent with my earlier stated positions.)
