Authors using:

	<meta property="og:url" content="http://example.com/" />

Are not doing so accidentally but intentionally. This is the correct
use of the OGP vocab. OGP is certainly not the only place where URIs
may appear as literals deliberately.

See, for instance:
	<http://purl.org/NET/uri>
	<http://open.vocab.org/docs/canonicalUri>
