    Coming in late. Probably covered.

    I'm using URIs a lot in Java programming. Pretty much where ever
    I need a key. I'm building frameworks, and to keep things
    extesnible, I'll use a URI keyed Map for data, for those things
    whose type cannot be anticipated. (Perlish, Perlish, me.)

    Thus, I tend to see URIs as arguments. This breakdown of
    hyperlink as function, URI as argument is how I see it.
    The distinction between the resource and the identifier was a
    leap, but it's natural now. The distinction between a URI and
    the code that resolves it was a leap, but it's natural now.

    Unless it's unnatural. I'm coming in late.
