Why Use anyURI

I have been asked what data type should be used for a website address element in a schema?


At first I thought the anyURI type would be appropriate. Maybe would insure the data is valid address.  Whereas the string type might not… problem is, validation tests show that the anyURI type allows virtually anything, just like the string type… So why use anyURI as a base data type? It does not appear to provide any greater assurance that the data will be better qualified than what would be gotten from a string?
