I am not sure the RWW mailing list is the right place to send this message, 
as they have not followed the debate. I think we need a wiki page that lists
the pros and cons of each of the issues below, if you are going to bring new
people to the conversation.

"Specifically" is not clear.

In terms of language we can use MUST, SHOULD etc.

So perhaps you can rephrase it in those terms.

[1] a WebID MUST be a an HTTP hash uri 
[2] a WebID SHOULD be an HTTP hash uri
[3] a WebID SHOULD be any HTTP hash uri

in all cases of course we agree that the URI MUST refer to an agent as described in the current spec.

Is this better?
