Er... huh? To me, the whole premise of rdf-logic is that
the relationship between a URI (URL, if you like) *is*
the same as that between a logical name and what it denotes.

Ben Grosof suggested to me (in the RDF IG meeting in
Cambridge in Feb) that having a "standard interpretation"
for a large class of logical names is not unusual;
i.e. we can take those "operational circumstances"
as an interpretation.

Not so?
