It's been pointed out that this is not quite enough: the whole point of
using URIs (namely the ability to use multiple authorities) depends on
the (static) semantics of URIs, not just their syntax.  It's a semantic
rule that says "Only microsoft.com can allocate URIs with a microsoft.com
authority part."
