Devon, in RFC2396 (the URI RFC) I see no mention of "length" or 
"size". Some HTTP implementations have a limit on the size of 
URIs that they can handle, but I don't think that's relevant 
since we're specifying the behavior of new, RDF processors.

Is there something I'm missing? Can you please point me to this 
length limit?
