RE:  Comparable considered necessary
A location is not equivalent to an identifier. I can't do a search and replace of "Microsoft" with  "One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052" in every document I own and have it make sense in every usage or most usages for that matter. However TBL, Fieldings et al have decided to conflate the two concepts with the URN/URL/URI situation. 
Of course, if you can restrict all references to "Microsoft" to mean the location of the Redmond campus then you can conflate the two. This is the same as Tim Bray and Paul Prescod who've decided to limit their usage of URIs to HTTP URLs. 
Like I said, much to your amusement it seems, the problem is subtle and is unseen by most.
