The URI when de-referenced returns a document. 
The document uniquely describes its ( the WebID I suppose? )'s referent
But you just said above that de-referencing the URI returned a document.
Your definition is a bit loopy :-) 
  I think you need to define what  de-referencing a URI for any 
URI scheme means. Also you need to explain how that would work with
telnet and irc uris.
