I consider the mis-use of http: URLs for denoting non-web-accessible
resources of any kind (namespaces included) to be the single greatest
cause of confusion both on the Web and the Semantic Web.

and http: URLs constitute the entire scope of the Web (or at least,
the only interesting part of it)...
