This is an interesting approach, which may bring us further.
I would like to see that we specify the relation between these 
families, such as to enable transition between the various domains.

Somehow we have to prevent to end up with a series of URLs,
each designed for its particular usage (which disclassifies 
them as Uniform, I guess).
