Could "dated URLs" meet the same requirements that were identified
for "tags"?

   1) Identifiers are unique across space and time and come from a
      practically inexhaustible supply;
   2) identifiers are convenient for humans to mint (create), read, type
      etc.;
   3) zero registration cost, at least to holders of domain names or
      email addresses; and negligible cost to mint new identifiers;
   4) easy identification of the entity that has minted the identifier,
      should that be desirable;
   5) independence of any particular resource-location or identifier-
      resolution scheme.
