Oh dear ... I've already used that URI to denote the class of people
who don't have a firm grip on the concept of naming ;-)

Question 1: What's to stop me doing that?

Question 2: If there's nothing to stop me, what does this tell us
            about the usefulness of private conventions involving the
            use of http: URIs as names?

Question 3: Why is the http: URI scheme any better (or worse) than
            any other in this regard?
