At first i thought it was some copy-paste error os the like. But now i got this.
I still see sentence as not-so-clear:

For WebIDs .., the URI ...

Here "the URI" does seem like it is "THE URI" that was mentined
earlier, but i can hardly guess how it is related to the context
before comma.
This is not because "WebID is URI" link is not clear to the reader (to
me at least), this is because the wording used.
