Ok, here's a test.  I'm going to write down two URIs.  One is an "URL",
using the commonly understood definition, and the other is not.  Which
is which?


I'll save a round trip, and reveal that the latter is the URL, and the
former is not an URL.  Even though the former looks more like an URL,
its resolution mechanism does not include DNS.  It is in fact resolved
by looking up an IP/port in a registry that I maintain, and charge a
fee to create names within.

The latter is the URL, because I've defined that its resolution
mechanism use DNS, after "www." is prepended, and ".ca" is appended to
the authority part.
