"A link is built from two pieces:
  a base URI
  a URI reference"
 -- http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/2003/webarch-20031111/#links

I think URI references are an irrelevant detail
when discussing links.

URI references are shorthand for URIs in general,
not just in links.

And the fact that URIs have a shorthand form isn't
very interesting when discussing links.

Sorry I don't have a replacement to suggest just now,
I'm writing from the meeting.
