Well to me, it depends on what the meaning of "dereferencable" is. I'm happy
to concede to Len's insistence that a UR* is always dereferencable. After
all, if one puts up a catalog or index that takes a URN and spits out a usable
resource in some way, you've "dereferenced" it.
Of course, this isn't terribly useful as a basis for examining the
architectural issues because any string is thus dereferenceable, including,
say, an FPI.
I'm not sure Schrödinger is such a great backdrop for this conversation. The
planck constant is just not big enough to figure into the politics of
