Which URI comparison semantics did you have in mind? One that looks up a DNS
name and turns it into an IP address, perhaps?
The TAG did a study of this and found there was no feasible algorithm for
URI equality comparison other than codepoint comparison (which is clearly
wrong, but at least predictable).
