Rather: "they work for me and if you have practical problems you'll have
to explain them to me because I don't see them."

I'm sure this is true. I was proceeding more from Simon's point of view
which I perceive to be the opposite of yours. He sees the conceptual
generalization from URLs to URIs to be a problem. I think it is healthy
and productive to think of "those strings" as identifiers, not
locations, in part because it allows knowledge modeling.
