Possibly the example chosen (printers) isn't the best for making your 
point. I see your point theoretically. I just don't see it in the 
example. The problem may start with, "It's relatively easy to motivate 
giving the printer its own URI".

Actually I'd say it's incredibly easy and obvious to do so, and I'd go 
quite a bit further than that. I'd say "It's relatively easy to motivate 
giving the printer its own IP address." The separate URIs per printer 
falls out of that very naturally.

Again, I think I see what you're trying to say. I just don't think the 
printer example is the best instantiation of that.
