No, I think they identify the Real World objects (mostly, but not exclusively, persons) which are reachable by dialing those phone numbers.

Well, then we raise the issue of the authority by which RDF statements are issued, and why we should believe them -- a vexed subject. -- John Cowan <jcowan@r...> http://www.reutershealth.com I amar prestar aen, han mathon ne nen, http://www.ccil.org/~cowan han mathon ne chae, a han noston ne 'wilith. --Galadriel, _LOTR:FOTR_
