I too would be interested in understanding why people in the life  
sciences don't use URLs, because I think the advantage of using them  
is absolutely huge. Being able to "GET my meaning" [1] makes the  
Semantic web so easy to explain, so simple to read, so beautiful all  
in all that one really needs to have an amazing reason not to go that
