   RE: [xml-dev] URIs harmful (?!)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Who's afraid of Schrodinger's Cat?
Schrodinger's Cat!
Schrodinger's Cat!
His box is dark and is face is fat.
I WANT a Cat Like THAT!
He's JUST a Cat Like THAT!

The URzed is ALWAYS dereferenceable. 
You may get a dead cat back, but 
you can't know that without opening 
the box.


From: Mike Brown [mailto:mike@skew.org]

I can see how using a URI for its syntax and not its semantics undermines
interoperability. But I don't see how URLs fix that. If I want an identifier,
it might be just as advantageous as it is harmful to use an identifier that
might also be usable in other contexts, be they temporal or systematic.
