These would be looked up in another directory service if you typed the name into your web browser. The directory service could allow for multiple matches, multiple spellings, character set conversion, Japanese names could be registered with their Romanization, Chinese names with multiple encodings, etc. This is a good plan, and leaves URLs alone. It would keep people from registering all of those silly DNS names like 'pimples.com' too.
