Yes, but only where you come from. Over here, just about everybody who
needs to uniquely identify a person will actually use the PIN.
Government agencies, banks, credit card companies, universities,
everybody. Given that those sorts of instances aren't exactly what one
might call trivial in the e-world, I think a URI type to facilitate PIN
use can actually make a difference in how well RDF is perceived around
these parts.
