Three weeks ago I'd have answered "No, it's just a name.  It may look like 
a URI, but it isn't really, it's just a uniquely identifying text 
string".  I still hope this is the truth.

However, there's currently a serious debate [about 1000 emails in the last 
two or three weeks] running on more of less this issue on the xml-uri W3C 
mailing list.  I think all bets are off for the moment :-(

This is xml-dev, the mailing list for XML developers.
