Thanks for differenciating "type" and "means" of data in this
discussion, as posted in . I agree URI is a data type, and UID is more
about semantics, so there are rooms for co-existence.
Take a step further, in iCalendar, there are sugggested good practices:
UID:19960401T080045Z-4000F192713-0052 at host1.com
This is not a registerred URI, should this be allowed in UID? anyhow I put
some examples to illustrate the possible combinations:
-- url + uid (url is subset of uri, so perhaps no reason of repeating
<a class="url uid" href="http://example.com/contentspace/somenumber">the
-- uri + uid
<a class="uri uid" href="urn:uuid:f81d4fae-7dec-11d0-a765-00a0c91e6bf6">the
-- uid (not uri, see iCalendar example)
<a class="uid" href="19960401T080045Z-4000F192713-0052 at host1.com">the
-- uri (in other use cases)
<abbr class="uri" title="urn:isbn:0950788120">0 9507881-2-0</abbr>
does this make sense?
