I think that this was an intelligent choice -- the idea was to provide
a simple global naming service and then see how the market decides to
use it (actual use will be an important input to the schema process).
Canned use cases might just have confused things even further, since
people would have assumed that they were in some way normative.  After
all, would early use cases for IP have included the Web?

All the best,
