When I say proxyURI I also mean a wrapper URI. An intermediary URI that 
handles all the data access and transformation heuristics via URL 
patterns. For example, how we (and others) use existing data formats and 
protocols to produce 5-star Linked Data [1][2][3][4][5] on the fly. 
Others have produced similar and a majority are based on hashless URIs.

Instead or re-beating this matter to death, I really encourage the group 
to move to a proper vote on this matter. I don't feel we are actually 
making any progress on the debate front. It's time to vote on this 
matter so that we can all make clear decisions about our respective 
strategies and priorities, bearing in mind general time scarcity.

Links:

1. http://linkeddata.uriburner.com -- a service that produces 5-star 
Linked Data for over 100+ data format and protocol combinations
2. http://ode.openlinksw.com -- an extension for all the major browsers 
that hooks into the service above (data can end up in the public store 
or your own, subject to configuration)
3.

-- facebook proxy/wrapper 5-star hashless Linked Data URI
4. http://estatwrap.ontologycentral.com/ -- a proxy/wrapper 5-star 
Linked Data URI
5. http://wbwrap.ontologycentral.com/ -- ditto .
