So you infer that URIs belong to IETF and URLs to the W3C? At the same 
time you assume this is architecture with real interoperability in mind.

You are making an important point here, quite profound. I really need to 
know if this is the view shared by others.

The most powerful virtue of the Web is its interoperability. That virtue 
is inextricably linked to URI abstraction.
