To understand this old problem please read: 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2007/WD-cooluris-20071217/#hashuri .

Important point to note, this matter ultimately becomes a permathread 
whenever a spec attempts to pick one style over the other.

The solution to these kinds of problems stem back to biblical stories, 
such as the one illustrating the wisdom of Solomon re. splitting a 
disputed baby in half.

HTTP URIs are "horses for course" compliant. It is always best to keep 
them that way when designing specs for HTTP based solutions.
