Aesthetically, it ensures you get the effects of a reference, across 
different viewing media. It also ensures you *indicate* a Reference when 
you mean a Reference. As opposed to indicating a Literal Identifier when 
you actual mean a Reference based Identifier.

Being clear and consistent about Identifiers is very important.

I don't know what "semantics" mean to you. To mean, every sentence is 
endowed with semantics by virtue of the existence of a verb. The 
sentence is question makes reference to an identifier, the identifier in 
question isn't literal i.e., it doesn't denote its literal value, it 
denotes something else.
