Well seeing as Bunyip are doing the work anyway we might as well hear 
what its all about and maybe make some useful input.  If they reckon its 
more than "extended-URLs-with-lots-of-features" and can therefore do neat 
things that can't be accompished easily or at all with the WG's existing 
URI structures then maybe we should all sit up and take notice... :-)

Anyway, its not like the URI mailing list has incredibly high traffic - I 
at least can put up with a few extra messages.
