Hi Karl,

I was not discussing URI syntax.  I was explaining that these 
vocabularies and codes are in widespread use and was using Google 
search to demonstrate this.  While a search for each of the 
strings on the left-hand side does yield many hits, these hits 
include resources related to the entities I listed on the right-
hand side.

I do not have the same answers AND more I do not have one answer but  
a list of links going on multiple web pages when I have tried on

I'm not sure the result of a search can be considered as an  
identifier. Or I have missed something in this thread.

This is for example a possible identifier
These work too (which are used often. Unfortunately, but you talked  
about real world)
Or these ones?
