Public IDs that begin "IDN domain-name//" are as unique
as domains (which is to say, only during a given period of
time). This is part of ISO 9070 on Formal Public Identifiers.

I hold that URIs designate resources. The GET method
returns some representation of the resource, if one is
available. This is equally true of an URN as of an URL.

Some resources don't have representations, the "thing
without a rep" trick notwithstanding.
