"Ownership" isn't exactly the word I'm looking for, but the adoption of 
CORS to express licenses implies that the author of 
  has a certain right over (or vice versa, 
depending on which links to which). That would depend *only* on the 
similarity of their URLs, CORS offers no way to negate that relation.

The Web architecture document[1] says that such inferences from URLs 
should not be made. Two URLs are either the same or different. There is 
nothing in between.
