article on URIs, is this material that can be used by the SWEO IG?

Dear TAG,

The SWEO interest group [3] is searching for tutorial material about the 
Semantic Web,
and especially about "URIs in the context of the Semantic Web".

Richard Cyganiak, Max Völkel and I have written an introductionary article
"Cool uris for the Semantic Web" [2] summing up the
TAG-http-range-14 decision [1] and TimBl's favorited "# hash" Uris.

Now we humbly ask if members of the Tag, could review this article and 
its usefulness as tutorial material for people wanting to learn the 
Semantic Web.

My question to you is:
"Can the Article at [2] be used as introductionary material for Semantic 
Web beginners,
and can the SWEO interest group circulate it?"
[Yes, but you have to change ....]

An Issue that was raised in the semweb-mailinglist and in personal 
is that we do not mention the possibilities given by using URNs and other
URI schemes. I argue that this is not necessary for an introductionary 
because http URIs are so omnipresent.

What is your opinion on "having to mention URN and alternative URI 
schemes is mandatory"?
