I'd rather leave them as is at least for the first WD publication, because the isegserv.itd.rl.ac.uk server is already configured to support them.  

I promised a while ago to test these configurations with the W3C
site configuration.  i haven't yet done so but do still hope to do this.

So I propose that we keep the URIs as they are for the first public
WD and change them to be in the w3c URI space for the next
version.  I think David was perhaps hoping we could shorten
/VM/http-examples/exampleN also; for w3.org we'd likely have
/2006/01/example/1 or something similar, which is a bit shorter
but perhaps even less "readable".
