OK. That makes some sense. What do you mean by the word "could"? Doie 
sit require that we could use existing schemes and syntaxes to assign 
a URI? or merely that such a scheme is conceivable?

For example, in an analogous situation, would it be OK to consider a 
particular group of frames with particular documents in each frame a 
resource, even though there's not as yet any URI that can point to 
them? (I'm thinking pre-XFrames here.)
