Fine, but an Identity of an Agent isn't denoted by a URL (an identity 
card could be denoted using an HTTP URL). It is denoted by an HTTP URI, 
in regards to the HTTP driven World Wide Web.

[1] http://bit.ly/1ktFdy0 -- IRI
[2] http://bit.ly/1elU7Rh -- URI
[3] http://bit.ly/1bHGrQu -- HTTP URL
[4] http://bit.ly/1elKLcn -- WebID
[5] -- HTTP URI (HTTP URLs and WebIDs are types of HTTP URIs that denote 
specific kinds of things or entity types).
