Re: [xml-dev] URIs

Thanks Simon,

I am a guilty Universalist!
Relevant RFC is this one I guess.

But its not hard to understand the confusion.

Maybe Universal was used initially?

To achieve global uniqueness, short strings won't do.

Just a quick reminder to all:

URIs are Uniform Resource Identifiers, not Universal or Unique.

URIs have been reused quite frequently, often to cases (versions of XML vocabularies) with substantially different meanings.

(They can also be quite short, though I think that's less of a problem.)
