Hah.  You wish.  No, a time stamp doesn't come close to resolving URI 

We'll all keep putting a lot of unnecessary work into confusing ourselves 
until we learn to live with URI ambiguity and inconsistency, as we live with 
ambiguity in words.  Sure, we'd still be confused, but at least we wouldn't be 
wasting so much energy in the process.
