The consensus of the Group with regards to issue i001 after our
Melbourne face-to-face is that EPRs are not identifiers, so my
analysis collapses to the following: an EPR contains an [address]
property which is the address (URI) for the endpoint, the rest being
data and metadata.

However, what this [address] URI precisely refers to is currently
under discussion, and this relates to your issue EndpointsRef47 (see
the thread starting at [1]).

I suspect that this will be something that we will want to discuss at
our joint meeting.
