According to the RFC Unique Identifier, the only to requirements

1) Value Type: TEXT
2) Globally Unique

Any URL fits the TEXT requirement. As for globally unique, all URL only
resolve to a single location, so that makes it globally unique.  The
only caveat is that if you have two events, those each need to use a
unique URL, not just http://events.example.org, but instead

The recommendation is just that, a recommendation, not a requirement.
