Primarily that it seems to acknowledge a lot of the disconnects in the URI universe rather than denying their existence. My primary interest in working with URIs is in dealing with their concrete representations, and the notion of these unique Platonic Forms lurking behind me has always seemed stupid, to put it simply. (I'm no fan of Plato to begin with, so finding a cult of 21st-century Platonists who fancy themselves philosopher-kings is a strange shock all its own.) Bill's expression seems to me to pull the rug out from under those conceits and open up some new possibilities. After spending too much time in the gardens of RFC 2396, it was nice to have a few bolts of lightning. >I've always said the sky is not falling in my corner of the URI >universe, and precisely because I've pretty much always admitted the >many-to-many idea, and scoffed at the very concept of a truly >universal identifier. They did relax a bit on the "universality", settling just for uniform, but you're definitely right. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com -- http://monasticxml.org
