I am confused guys. When exactly did a URI become a Unique Resource
Identifier from being a Uniform Resource Identifier?.

If there is no requirement for being unique for a derived URI, whats big
deal if two QNames derive same URI?.

URIs are not made up of two parts (in general).

But how can you say that it's acceptable to consider different QNames to
be the same?  If I wanted them to be the same, then I would've picked
same URI and local name.  If I didn't do that, what gives you the right
merge them?
