But if one did NOT intend to make such material available, would it not be
useful for them to use a URI scheme that shared the simplicity of identifier
generation provided by the http scheme but without the implication of
retrievability via HTTP?

This was the essence of the "hname" URI schema proposal independently made
by Paul Prescod and myself during the xhtml namespaces debate.
