I don't know from RDF/SW/URI but the "nature of that animal" might be 
considered changed if you "give it" anything - including a name. In the 
current discussion it seems eminently clear that just talking about a 
resource does in fact "name" it in some sense. The "it" that *was* 
a-nonymous no longer is such.

But I'm weird!
