Note also that uris are readable so people choose their names for their semantic values. Search engines rank them and take into account the strings inside them. It has secondary effect such as destroying content negotiation on languages for example. It means also that there is no simple way for a search engine bot to discover all languages of a URI and index them. There is a RFC which was never really used by servers and search engines.


to deliver a page in French or in English depending 
on the Accept-Language of the user is not used a lot.
Instead a Web agency will do for example for the 
about page. (pattern very common in Canada for 

http://example.org/about    <- English
http://example.org/a-propos <- French

Another issue is that most CMSes do not separate the URI layer (identifier) and the representations layer.
