Does it make any sense to consider including "ratings" (i.e., a _short_
synopsys of a review or other val;ue judgement) and referencing longer
reviews (i.e., real documents) through appropriate use of URLs rather than
including what could be real documents in a URC?

In terms of human readability and understandability, it seems to me to be
desirable to use this approach rather than the SORTNAME-element approach,
at least if real people are going to be looking at URCs without the benefit
of a client (as I suspect will happen a lot).
