/ "Tim Berners-Lee" <timbl@w3.org> was heard to say:
| A QName is a perfectly good reference to something which is
| identified by a URI.

Absent a mapping from foo:bar to an absolute URI reference, we can't
say what URI identifies foo:bar.

Until rdfmsQnameUriMapping-6 is resolved, I'm not sure I can agree
wholeheartedly with the assertion that qnames are references to things
identified by a URI. I fear that URIEquivalence-15 will have some
bearing as well (though perhaps not).
